Mental Health & Wellbeing

The mental health of children and young people, specifically that they have the resilience and support to flourish in the modern world, is a priority for Learn Sheffield. It is a key aspect of the readiness theme in the Sheffield Priorities as well as a focus for local and central government. Learn Sheffield is working closely with Sheffield City Council and the CCG (NHS Clinical Commissioning Unit) to ensure that the Healthy Minds project and other opportunities are made available to Sheffield schools and academies.

The Healthy Minds project is an opportunity for CAMHS and schools to work together to support a whole school approach to emotional wellbeing alongside other key partners such as Educational Psychology, MAST, SEND and School Nursing. The links above provide additional information about the roll out of Healthy Minds in Sheffield and other information, resources and opportunities in relation to child and adolescent mental health to support Sheffield educational professionals.

More information about the Healthy Minds project can be found on the Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust website.
