On the Kooth web platform, you will essentially be on a community forum where you can interact with other people who are logged in on the Kooth community. These may be different people who are battling their own mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, loneliness etc.
On the Kooth platform, you will be able to keep a journal of your day to day activities so you can review them later to see how you have progressed.
“Mental health is defined as a state of well being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.”
Over the course of their education, children spend over 7,800 hours at school.
With such a huge amount of time spent in the classroom, our school provides an ideal environment for promoting good emotional well being. We promote this through many ways including P4C (Philosophy for Children) sessions and work based around our values.
