Mental Health & Wellbeing

Over 50% of mental illnesses start before the age of 14, and 1 in 10 children and young people are coping with the challenges of a mental health disorder. Schools are on the frontline when it comes to supporting children and young people’s mental wellbeing. Staff working in schools are ideally placed to recognise and respond to early signs of mental health difficulties in children and young people.

This page identifies how school staff at THS can support your children and young people by identifying mental health problems and by measuring and monitoring the mental health and emotional wellbeing of our pupils.

Our school values are:

  • Ambition

  • Respect

  • Care

  • Honesty

As the result of Children’s Mental Health week, the young people’s Tough Times Reference Group would like to announce the release of their annual survey around mental health and wellbeing. They have created this short anonymous survey to spread awareness around young people’s emotions and reliability of services that they may have used.  They aim for children and young people/young adults to feel that they are being listened to and enable them to have a voice to help shape services here in Calderdale.

Please click the button below to take you to the survey.

The survey will be open for 6 weeks closing on Friday 19th March 2021.
