Mental Health and Wellbeing

                              'There is 'no health without mental health'

Mental Health at Scartho Infants’ School and Nursery

 

At Scartho Infants’ School and Nursery we endeavour to nurture a positive ethos and culture where everyone feels they belong, working with and alongside families and making sure that the school community is welcoming, inclusive and respectful.

 

We want to give pupils the information that they need to make good decisions about their own health and wellbeing and see that both physical health and mental wellbeing are interlinked. It is important that pupils understand that good physical health contributes to good mental wellbeing and vice versa.

 

 ‘There is no health without mental health’

 

We all have mental health, just as we all have physical health. Being mentally healthy means that we feel good about ourselves, make and keep positive relationships with others and can feel and manage the full range of emotions. 

 

These can range from happiness, excitement and curiosity through to less comfortable feelings such as anger, fear or sadness. 

 

Good mental health allows us to cope with life's ups and downs, to feel in control of our lives and to ask for help from others when we need support. 

 

Mental health and mental illness are part of a 'spectrum', just as physical health and illness are. Throughout our lives, many different things can lead us to move up and down the spectrum such as the start or end of relationships, moving house or school, getting a new job or being made redundant, changes in physical health and good news or worries about those we are close to.

 

 Often, life events that are outside our control can damage our mental health, and this is made worse if we feel powerless to do anything about them.

 

 One of the ways we can re-gain a sense of control and nourish our mental health is to remember 'the five ways to wellbeing' which have been found in research to improve mental wellbeing in children and adults and is a way in which we approach promoting mental health and wellbeing in our school.
