Mental Health Awareness Week
5th - 9th October
This week is positive health awareness week.
Positive mental health enables young people to live fulfilling lives. Promoting the mental health and well-being of our young people is a shared responsibility.
Schools are in a unique position to promote mental health and emotional wellbeing and to identify young people experiencing emotional distress. Responsibility for mental health and well-being also rests with the wider school community. Mental health and well-being are linked to developing a sense of connectedness to school to enable young people experience success, and to develop their social competencies and resilience to face the challenges of everyday living.
Schools are one of the key settings for the promotion of the mental health of young people.
