8 October 2018

Week beginning 8th October

To mark World Mental Health Day (10th Oct) we will be having a whole school focus on the topic of Mental Health.

The World Health Organisation defines mental health as a state of wellbeing in which every individual achieves their potential, copes with the normal stresses of life, works productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to their community. Mental health includes our emotional, psychological and social wellbeing. It affects how we think, feel and act.

Like physical health, mental health is something we all have. It can range across a spectrum from healthy to unwell; it can fluctuate on a daily basis and change over time.

At St.Peter’s over the coming months we will be taking a variety of steps to try to raise awareness and improve our understanding of mental health.

The QT for this week is called “Mental Health” and can be found at the following at the following links:

In this QT we begin to understand some of the facts around the topic of mental health and reflect on how we could improve on the mental health of those around us in St.Peter’s.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, thank you that you know us, love us and care about us. Help us to know this in our daily lives and to help improve the mental health of others in school through our words and actions. Amen

God bless and have a good week

Mr Baker
