Meet our Mental Health Champions
At St Joseph's, we have three Wellbeing Champions. These three have taken part in a 'Young Mental Health Champions' seminar, alongside our PSHE lead, Miss Gill. Within the seminar they worked with other schools in Lancashire to develop their understanding of about mental health and how to support their peers. They currently work with Miss Gill to run a peer mentor Wellbeing group every fortnight. They also planned and helped deliver our Wellbeing Week in school.
Please find below a selection of leaflets for children and parents to help with mental wellbeing.
