Campbeltown Courier - - NEWS -

Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil has ap­proved a new men­tal health and well­be­ing guid­ance doc­u­ment for schools, en­ti­tled Our Chil­dren, Their Men­tal Health. Coun­cil­lor Yvonne McNeilly said: ‘Our ed­u­ca­tion staff al­ready do a tremen­dous job of sup­port­ing our chil­dren and young peo­ple through dif­fi­cult times in their lives, but it’s not al­ways easy to spot the signs of those strug­gling, those putting on a brave face but break­ing apart be­hind their smile. Some­times it’s staff them­selves who are suf­fer­ing in si­lence with their own men­tal health is­sues. ‘This new doc­u­ment will help en­cour­age pos­i­tive con­ver­sa­tions about men­tal health with both pupils and staff, and will en­sure more in­for­ma­tion is avail­able in our schools. ‘It will raise aware­ness of what help is avail­able for any­one strug­gling.’ To view the doc­u­ment, visit the coun­cil web­site.
