Mental Health and Wellbeing at Chellaston Academy

At Chellaston Academy, we are committed to the protection and promotion of positive mental health for our whole school community.  We will continuously endeavour to improve wellbeing and mental health by utilising a whole school approach as well as the identification and implementation of positive processes and practices which promote good mental health and wellbeing.

In addition to promoting positive mental health, we recognise that one in six children and young people, and one in six adults may meet the criteria for a diagnosable mental health problem, with emerging evidence of a recent rise in anxiety and depression in some groups. We aim to identify and provide timely and appropriate support for all members of the school community affected both directly and indirectly by mental health problems.
