Supporting children with mental health issues

One in five children suffer from mental health issues, many before they reach the age of 11.

Great Wilbraham Primary School has taken steps to help children to deal with negative feelings and be more aware of their mental health. Lucy attended a special class held at the school with a mental health nurse. The class encouraged children to talk openly about their feelings and worries, and provided them with practical steps on how to manage anger anbd anxiety.
