At the Manor Academy we are all committed to promoting and supporting positive mental health and well- being for all of our students, through high quality pastoral care.
This is delivered through a comprehensive PSHE programme, assemblies and guest speakers. We are passionate about providing all of our students with the knowledge and understanding they need to develop and sustain positive mental health.
However, we do understand that there may be times when life events or difficulties can affect a young person, and they may need extra support to overcome challenges.
If you have concerns regarding your child’s mental well- being, please talk to us initially. We can also highlight the following agencies and websites that may be able to provide you and your child with specialist help and support:
Parents/carers in Nottinghamshire can request support from Counselling and Support for Young People (CASY). CASY is a free service in Nottinghamshire for 6-25 year olds.
Kooth – Online Counselling
This is a free counselling service which is accessible to young people aged 11-25 living within Nottinghamshire. This can be accessed via any device as it is an online service and, as it has similarities to online chat, many young people have found this a good way to gain professional support from trained counsellors.
Healthy Family Team (formerly the school nursing team)
For helpful and confidential advice, young people aged between 11-19 can text their Public Health Practitioner (school nurse) on 07507 329952.
A website offering help and guidance to young people with a variety of mental health concerns. There is also a helpline for parents to call if you are worried or need help/advice - 0808 8025544.
Stem4 is a teenage mental health charity aimed at improving teenage mental health by addressing commonly occurring mental health issues at an early stage.
If you find working from a mobile phone useful, you can also download an app that provides tasks that help support your child to resist or manage the urge to self-harm, or cope with eating disorders or anxiety. You can add your own tasks too and it’s completely private and password protected.
