Schools Health and Resilience Education Project (SHARE)
SHARE wants to improve the mental health and emotional well-being of our young people in Secondary and Middle* Schools in Somerset. We want to change our culture by breaking down the stigma of mental health issues, and by helping our young people become more resilient so they are better equipped to understand and manage their emotions and behaviour.
SHARE will do this by involving everyone in schools – teaching professionals, young people and parents, volunteers and support staff - and provide them the tools and resources to help recognise, manage and sustain good mental health and emotional well-being.
*Children aged 11-18
Did you know that 4-10 February 2019 is #ChildrensMentalHealthWeek?
This is a week led by the charity Place2Be and will encourage children and young people to look after their bodies and minds, with the theme in 2019 being Healthy: Inside and Out.
The organisation has lots of free resources available for both Primary and Secondary Schools which includes classroom activities and presentation slides available. There are lots of ways to get involved. Find out more by clicking here
SHARE Project Workers will be supporting schools in the lead up to this week with resources and display materials where required.
