The Role of Schools in Emotional Wellbeing

Students spend a vast amount of time in school and for those experiencing difficult home lives it can be a place of safety and support. It is important that every school works to produce confident, well rounded individuals in addition to their focus on academic achievement.

There are many benefits for schools that support student emotional wellbeing. By raising awareness of support services, students will appreciate that help is there for them. This support is important in offering early intervention to the one in ten young people that will experience mental illness, but also for students who may struggle emotionally without necessarily fitting a diagnosis.

There is also a proven correlation between behaviour and academic performance. Supporting emotional wellbeing will contribute to every student reaching their academic potential.

Educating young people on the realities of mental illness is also a big factor in tackling mental health stigma which is still a massive problem in our society.
