Mental Health and Wellbeing
Mental Health Lead
and School Counsellor:
At Essa Academy, we aim to promote positive mental health for every member of our staff and student body. We pursue this aim using both universal, whole Academy approaches and specialised, targeted approaches aimed at vulnerable students.
In addition to promoting positive mental health, we aim to recognise and respond to mental ill health. In an average classroom, One in Six children will be suffering from a diagnosable mental health issue (NHS Digital). By developing and implementing practical, relevant, and effective mental health policies and procedures we can promote a safe and stable environment for students affected both directly and indirectly by mental ill health.
