Our school has been chosen to be part of a pilot project by Mind, the mental health charity, with the purpose of improving the mental health and well-being of everyone in our community.
Central Lancaster High School is one of 17 secondary schools in England and Wales working with Lancashire Mind to pilot their high-profile, exciting new way of looking after the mental health of everyone involved in school life.
This starts by asking everyone in our school community to take part in the confidential whole school mental health survey. It is designed to help find out how you, the rest of the school workforce, pupils, and parents feel about mental health, and about what is already in place.
In January, the results will be shared, and a representative group of teachers, pupils, and parents will be supported by Lancashire Mind to draw up an action plan. As part of our action plan, MIND might agree to provide mental health information, tailored assemblies, specialist training and workshops or one to one sessions. Whatever it includes, they’ll show how we can build on the things that are already working and what we can do to improve anything that might not be working as well.
It’s really important that everyone takes the survey. The more responses there are from across the school community, the better the supports will be. To access the survey online, please click this link: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/PR8WXBD
