Emotional wellbeing and mental health strategy
Schools and other educational settings have a key role to play in helping their children succeed by supporting them to be resilient and mentally heathy. Supporting children and young people’s social and emotional wellbeing contributes to positive academic progress.
From a review of evidence, a whole school approach is key to making a difference. The Wiltshire Healthy Schools programme provides schools with a tool to help them audit their current provision and gain accreditation for meeting key criteria across a wide range of issues relating to health and wellbeing.
This resource will enable Wiltshire schools and other settings to review their strategic approach to emotional wellbeing and mental health, audit related provision, consider suggestions for development and access local and national sources of support.
The recommendations presented are based on the current evidence base.
