Mental Health and Wellbeing
At Meopham School we believe the mental health and wellbeing of our students and staff is of paramount importance. We have our own school counsellor, who works with students and staff. Our wellbeing room is available for students to use when they need to. In our Personal Development lessons we also practice mindfulness to help support student wellbeing.
Alongside our strategies in school, we also work with a range of outside agencies. Below are some support organisations that students or parents and carers can access to support improved mental health and wellbeing.
A free, private and confidential service for children and young people up to 18 years of age.
Resources for young people, parents and carers to help understand emotional wellbeing and resilience.
Emotional and mental health support for children and young people aged between 11-24 years.
The UK's leading children's charity, preventing abuse and helping those affected to recover.
The Elliott Holmes Memorial Fund CIC provides funding and direct access to mental health counselling for young people aged 13-18, in the borough of Gravesham. They work in partnership with local members of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and referrals can be made through their website at: Young People Mental Health and Wellbeing | Istead Rise | Meopham
