MENTAL HEALTH & WELLBEING
Ilkley Grammar School understands the importance of promoting good mental health and well-being with our students. Below is a video discussing the strategies we use to encourage students to foster regular self-care in their daily routines. It also discusses support strategies we provide when students might be struggling.
In addition to the above video outlining key strategies and resources, all students have a Mental Health and Well-Being Handbook on their iPad.
The Kooth website is also a great resource and provides free, safe and anonymous support. Where feasible, Place2Be counselling services also continue remotely for those students already accessing this support.
If your child is struggling emotionally, they can raise this with their tutor or contact their Head of Year by email. Parents/carers can also do this on their behalf if students are reluctant to communicate how they are feeling.
