Supporting Mental Health

At Greenhead College, we aim to promote positive mental health for every member of the student body. We ensure that:

  • The skills, knowledge and understanding needed by our students to keep themselves and others physically and mentally healthy are included as part of our Tutorial Programme
  • We teach mental health and emotional wellbeing issues in a safe and sensitive manner
  • There is both a staff and student Mental Health Working Party which works collaboratively to adopt a ‘whole college approach’ to mental health
  • We provide a College counselling service
  • All our Personal Tutors and Additional Learning Support staff are Mental Health First Aid England trained
  • We offer a MoodMaster course, based on cognitive behaviour therapy and delivered by qualified group leaders who hold a MoodMaster license
  • Our Mental Health Lead works closely with external services and staff across college to ensure we have a whole college approach to mental health
  • Students can request 1:1 support with positive emotional wellbeing at any point in their college journey. 1:1 support is not time limited or restricted in any way
  • Through the Mental Health and Well-being framework the College dedicates a week every term to support mental and physical wellbeing by highlighting specific well-being activities
  • We support learners in accessing opportunities across college such as trips, enrichment activities and participation in PAWS week.
