Maintaining every day, regular routines wherever possible, such as, attending school and lessons whilst working towards managing mental health is vitally important. At the Whitehaven Academy we offer a wide range of support to help students develop positive mental health, wellbeing and resilience, in order to encourage a positive healthy mindset. Looking after your mental health is just as important as looking after your physical health.
In addition to our existing pastoral team, a number of other staff have also been trained in Mental Health First Aid. These staff wear the green ribbon badge (the symbol of the Mental Health Foundation). Students can easily identify these staff when they need to talk about their wellbeing.
