Wellbeing Support

Mental Health & Emotional Wellbeing 

At St Ann’s Heath, we believe in promoting positive mental health and emotional wellbeing to ensure that the school is a community where everyone feels able to thrive. Our school values underpin everything that we do. 

This page will be used to supply information and resources to support families with their wellbeing. 

Who has mental health? 

We all have mental health – some people call this emotional health or wellbeing. 

What is mental health? 

The World Health Organisation defines mental health as a state of wellbeing in which every individual achieves their potential, copes with the normal stresses of life, works productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to their community. Mental health includes our emotional, psychological and social wellbeing. It affects how we think, feel and act. 

Good mental health and wellbeing is just as important as good physical health. Like physical health, mental health can range across a spectrum from healthy to unwell; it can fluctuate on a daily basis and change over time. 


Please find below some links and information that may be helpful in supporting the mental health of both your child and your family. 

Surrey's Parent Wellbeing Service (PWS) offers support to parents or carers whose children and young people are experiencing poor mental health and well-being such as anxiety, depression, stress, mild self harm and eating disorders.

The service aims to enable parents and carers to be a protective factor for their child or young person in their wellbeing recovery. Support is offered to parents or carers across Surrey.

PWS Practitioners will meet with parents or carers to help them identify their goals and how they can achieve positive change for them and their family. This can be through:
Meeting with practitioners for 1:1 support
Attending local groups
Getting advice, guidance or information
Accessing phone or online support
Finding other support in the local community
Befriending other parents or carers going through similar difficulties
