Mental Health Awareness

Healthy London Partnership, together with the Greater London Authority, have developed a mental health toolkit for schools to help support children with their emotional wellbeing and mental health - a growing priority for health services and schools. This toolkit is for school leaders and staff and provides a wide range of information and guidance on how to promote emotional wellbeing and mental health within schools.

Mental Health Awareness Week was 18-22 May this year and the theme was KINDNESS
"We have chosen kindness because of its singular ability to unlock our shared humanity. Kindness strengthens relationships, develops community and deepens solidarity. It is a cornerstone of our individual and collective mental health. Wisdom from every culture across history recognises that kindness is something that all human beings need to experience and practise to be fully alive.”
