Schoolchildren encouraged to #BeBrave on Youth Mental Health Day

Solihull Editorial 27th Sep, 2023   0

SCHOOLCHILDREN’S mental health and self-belief was at the heart of lessons at Lyndon School.

To mark Youth Mental Health Day on September 19, which encourages young people to discuss and understand their mental health, pupils took part in lessons around this year’s theme #BeBrave.

The lessons looked to inspire young people to have the confidence and courage to pursue their goals and dreams.

As well as lessons the school offers a number of safe spaces for learners to recentre their mental health when required.

And pupils can access the revamped library, enjoying quiet time to read and reflect before and after school as well as at break and lunch.

Abid Butt, headteacher at Lyndon said: “I am glad that Youth Mental Health Day shines a light on an important topic, but this is something we think about every day at Lyndon School. We engage with a large number of partners to ensure that all learners are offered the support they need at key points in their development, including organisations such as Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS).

“We also have a long-standing partnership with Kooth, the digital mental health and wellbeing company, and all learners will be invited to attend an assembly in which they are made aware of how to seek help from trusted adults in school and at home as needed.”
