Long Melford wellbeing consultancy partners with Unity Schools Partnership to provide bespoke mental health support
School pupils and staff are set to benefit from bespoke mental health support after a new partnership was secured with a Long Melford wellbeing company.
The Unity Schools Partnership has confirmed it is working alongside OM Health and Wellbeing Consultancy, a firm specialising in mental health awareness training and support, to deliver the scheme to 25 different schools.
They include Thomas Gainsborough School in Great Cornard, Wells Hall Primary School and Woodhall Primary School, both in Sudbury, and Glemsford Primary Academy.
The support sessions will be led by consultancy co-founders and school nurses Sue Miller and Annie O’Neill, who will help pupils and teachers cope with anxiety, exam stress and internet safety.
“We are acutely aware that each school will have their own needs, and we will design programmes in conjunction with staff, pupils and parents,” said Sue.
“We know our sessions can make a positive impact on staff and pupils’ wellbeing but also have a knock-on effect for attendance and relationships in and out of the classroom.”
Tim Coulson, chief executive of the Unity Schools Partnership, said: “Health and wellbeing is a hugely important issue for staff and students alike and there is already a lot of work going on across our schools.”
