“10% of children in every classroom will have a mental health problem, that is 2 children in each class and a further 15% of children will go on to develop a mental health problem” (Namka, 2014)
Do you recognise your pupils’ are showing a number of signs of Emotional Health Concerns?
Come on a journey and help your children and young people cope with Emotional Health and Well being. This is a vital time to engage our children and young people in ensuring they have the right skills to be able to cope and adapt with what life throws their way.
We have designed a tailored made programme which is covered in 6 half day sessions that can be adapted to suit your needs. The programme is designed to draw the emotions of those individual’s who find it hard to express themselves through a more formal questioning approach.
Our programme, and ensures that we do not miss those individuals that require the most needed support and this is absolutely crucial.
Diagnostics – To identify the negative self talkers using a traffic light system
Stability– Establishing a safe place… someone or somewhere/something that makes you feel safe, secure and happy. Understand the key issues underlying poor Mental Health and emotional wellbeing . What measures can be put in place to prevent worsening the situation a young person may find themselves in. Providing the individual the right tools and methods to find their safe place. Providing and creating a series of individual ‘Cheerleading Statements’ to be able to offer support.
Actions – What will the individual do? The individual will be able to understand the key areas underlying their own actions? What will the school do? We will work alongside the teacher/groups of staff to offer further support for those individuals who may need it?
Prevention – This is the most important step in the whole programme, this is about ensuring that the individual has the relevant help and the best possible support so that they do not return to their original emotional state.
At any one of these steps it is important to refer back to the Diagnostics stage, this will establish whether the individual is improving and also ensure that those individuals who find it hard to express their emotions are not overlooked.
The outcomes of this programme include:
Each package offers Diagnostics, Coping Skills and Prevention and is tailored to each individual child and young person’s needs.
