Mental Health and Wellbeing
At The Axis Academy we aim:
To ensure that through the promotion of positive mental health and wellbeing, children and young people are supported to understand and express their feelings, build their confidence and emotional resilience.
To increase the awareness and understanding and reduce stigma amongst students, staff and parents/carers of issues involving the mental health and wellbeing of young people and to provide support at an early stage to any student who is or appears to be suffering from mental health issues.
Mental health and wellbeing is a varied and complex area and there are no quick fix solutions. Maintaining every day, regular routines wherever possible, such as, attending school and lessons whilst working towards managing mental health is key. School offers a range of services to help students develop positive mental health and wellbeing and support those experiencing mental health issues.
To help us achieve our positive approach to mental health and wellbeing, we have an amazing and friendly Pastoral Team, Mental Health aware Senior Leadership Team and Mental Health Counsellor who are available to support students and families should the need arise.
If you would like further advice on any of the areas above please contact us.
