Mental Health and Wellbeing

Good mental health is vital for success in all aspects of a student's life. At RMGS, along with teachers and form tutors, the following people are all here to help young people negotiate their way:

  • SEND team
  • Pastoral Support Assistants
  • Emotional Wellbeing Practitioners
  • School Counsellor
  • Form Tutor
  • Prefects and House Captains
  • School Nurse

There are lots of excellent resources out there to help young people and their parents and carers, but you might find these particularly helpful:

* Services Directory showing support in your area: for young people who are struggling.

* Self-care directory (scroll down the page until you reach the picture squares) detailing lots of activities that help you keep mentally well.

Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services also offers a good variety of resources too

Of course, school is always happy to help children talk about their mental health and signpost to professionals when necessary. Do visit How RMGS Keeps You Safe here too /page/?title=Care+%26amp%3B+Guidance&pid=251
