Ongoing support and advice for children and families
We care about the wellbeing of you and you child, not only because we want to remove barriers to learning, but also because you’re part of our school community here at Orgill.
At some point in our lives we will all struggle with keeping ourselves mentally healthy. This can be as a result of something that has happened to us as an individual, or something that happened to us as a community. Sometimes our mental health can take a down turn unexpectedly, out of the blue. Asking or searching for help is not a sign of weakness, it’s a way of helping yourself or those you care about. Seeking help and support is resilience and strength.
If you feel that you or someone close to you needs immediate support you can
call the Samaritans on 116 123
text the word SHOUT to 852258
or find your local crisis team number online at Mental Health Helpline for Urgent Help - NHS (www.nhs.uk)
If you feel that you or someone around you is in immediate danger call the emergency services on 999.

There are many different aspects to consider when looking into health, and a healthy mind often goes hand in hand with a healthy body. Sometimes we have look at the whole picture; that usually begins with talking.
Talking through feelings and changes with your child or another adult is a really healthy thing to do, but it’s not always easy, especially if it’s new to you, or something challenging has happened.
