My Happy Mind

29th Jun 2022

Not only has the My Happy Mind programme been widely successful with staff and parents, but the children are also reporting on the positive impact it is having on their mental health and wellbeing. We are loving that this programme is helping to give the children strategies to protect their emotional health and helping to inform the wider community on the importance of talking about mental health. Portaferry Integrated Primary School are aiming to break down the stigma and taboo associated with mental health and wellbeing. Having a child-centred ethos within the school, this programme is allowing the children to put themselves at the centre of their own mental health journey – all children in the school should feel nurtured in a safe space. The skills taught within the My Happy Mind programme are helping to prepare these children to become active listeners, with quality friendships and productive members of society. Lesson content engages learners of all ages, as well as being highly inclusive. Given the success of this year’s programme, we are keen to welcome back the My Happy Mind programme next year.
