Bringing our work into your school…

Together, we can help break down mental health stigma and create safer spaces in schools for children and young people to talk about their mental health and wellbeing.

According to NHS Digital, one in six children (aged 5-16) were identified as likely having a mental health problem in July 2021, a huge increase from one in nine in 2017. On average, that would amount to five children in every primary and secondary school classroom struggling with poor mental health.

Mental health problems affect people of all ages, genders and backgrounds, and it might be an issue which has affected your staff, students and other families.

By working together we can offer a range of benefits to your school, from dedicated support and services, education for pupils, teachers and assistants, as well as resources for families to boost engagements and personal development around mental health and body image.

HUGE thanks to you and your team for coming to Repton today. The workshop was excellent and pitched at just the right level. It was also thought-provoking and provided a very useful platform for discussion. It was very good to have a combination of pupil interaction, explanation and video. Thank you so much for all the work that had gone into preparing it – it really was much appreciated.
