Quick Navigation

Mar 10 2022

Dear all, 

I hope you are well and having a nice week. 

Apologies for my delay in getting back to you all as I have been off for a while due to Covid-19.

This email is following on from Secondary Heads 09/02/2022 Meeting, where I introduced my action from the H&F Anna Freud Consultation Meeting of helping to improve communication between schools and awareness/access to Kooth's support to help young people access support when in need. To also monitor and share Kooth data/ feedback/ case study's examples back to yourselves as Head Teachers in the coming months.

I would like to share with you opportunities that could work well for us to achieve this and to ensure we work more closely in supporting children and young peoples mental health:

HFEH Mind, Kooth, and NH Neuro Training Managing Exam Stress Workshop April 22nd 10am-11am

This is will be our second virtual collaborative workshop across this academic year, focusing on helping students to overcome Exam Stress and available to all H&F schools. The workshop will help students understand anxiety and stress and effective coping mechanisms to manage this.  

If you would like to register your school or year 11s and 10s, please complete this short form here - Managing Exam Stress - HFEH Mind, Kooth, and NH Neuro Training Workshop

Key Dates and Events 

In the coming months there are several key dates and events that would work well to highlight Kooth's support which is documented below:

  1. Stress Awareness Month - April (Potential Managing Anxiety and Stress or Managing Exam Stress Workshop)
  2. Mental Health Awareness Week - 9th - 15th May (Range of Potential Workshops)
  3. Pride Month - June (Potential LGBT Workshop)

Individual School Workshops and Assembly Presentations 

Kooth provides a full range of psychoeducational and wellbeing workshops at your disposal along with assembly presentations that can be used to highlight our support and used in conjunction with awareness days. A full breakdown is included in the flyer attached on our school support. 

Signposting

Resources (virtual and physical) can also be sent directly to your schools to highlight Kooth's support. 

If you would like to order any of our free resources please complete this short form and they will be sent out to your school - H&F Schools Free Resources

Data 

How this will be measured is I will share Kooth's Data on our support provided, the feedback as to whether this was effective, and referrals. 

Please do contact me at mstones@kooth.com if you would like to discuss any of the opportunities further and Kooth's support. 

I look forward to hearing from you. 

Kindest regards,

Michael Stones,
