We have two Mental Health Champions here at Stanhope Primary School who would like to tell you a little about themselves and how they can help.
Hello, my name is Miss Coils and I am one of your Mental Health Champions. Nothing gives me more joy than to see others content and thriving. You will usually find me in the Mindful Moment Room at school where I help our children to feel safe and happy. I have trained as a Mental Health First Aider which means I can support positive Mental Health with low intensity interventions and can provide initial assessment for referrals to appropriate services.
Hello, my name is Miss Mensforth and I work in partnership with Miss Coils as a Mental Health Champion. I passionately believe that ensuring young people have good mental health support is vital. I know that together we can make a real difference in encouraging more young people to talk openly about mental health. Working in the classroom allows me to improve teaching about mental health, promote greater use of counselling in schools and support joint working between mental health services and schools. I look forward to seeing/working with you across your time in Stanhope Primary School
