At Greenbank, your mental health and well-being is important to us. As well as doing all we can to promote good mental health, we also want to recognise and respond to difficulties and struggles you may be experiencing and feeling. We’ve pulled together a number of trusted resources that you can use, in addition to always being welcome to speak to a member of staff or one of our trained Mental Health Ambassadors. Our Mental Health Ambassadors represent every year group at Greenbank and they can be identified by a green Mental Health Foundation ribbon on their blazer. Please remember, you never have to struggle alone.

On Childline, you can talk about anything. Whether it’s something big or small, trained counsellors are there to support you. It is free, confidential and available any time, day or night.

Whether you want to understand more about how you’re feeling and find ways to feel better, or you want to support someone who’s struggling, Young Minds can help.

Kooth is an online space where you can access support and counselling after creating a free, confidential account.  You’ll have access to discussion groups, message boards and even a mood diary.

Papyrus provides confidential support and advice when you are struggling with thoughts of suicide, and also offers support to anyone worried about a young person.

Safe Space is a no-pressure place of safety where you can be heard, inspired and motivated with others.  Together, you can explore the big issues of life and faith. Check out their videos online or say hello to the team Fridays during lunch, where you’ll spot them in a big black tent on the field.

Beat is Britain’s eating disorder charity and is also the chosen charity of Keller House. They are there to encourage and empower people to get help quickly, because they know the sooner someone starts treatment, the greater their chance of recovery.

We were privileged to receive some great mental health training last year from The Mental Health Team at LFC Foundation. They provided workshops on Building Resilience, Coping and Understanding Emotions.
