Supporting good mental health
One in four people experience a mental health problem every year. Everyone needs help from time to time to deal with the stresses of modern life and the coronavirus pandemic has added an extra source of anxiety to children's lives. It is now more important than ever that we support young people's mental health and help them to develop the resilience and resources to keep themselves mentally healthy.
At Northolt High School we support students to have good mental health through our curriculum and support services. We believe it is important that they are aware of trusted resources and contacts if they need help. Families also play a vital role in supporting young peopls' mental health and we know that the best support happens when school, students and families communicate. If you would like to discuss any concerns or ways in which we can work together to support your child's mental health, please do get in touch.
