As you may already be aware, 10th October was World Mental Health Day. This day is a great opportunity to help raise students' awareness of mental health. Our younger children may not necessarily understand the intricacies of the importance of a healthy mind; nevertheless, here at NAIS Pudong, mental health and the well-being of our children underpins all that we do, even for Early Years.
Being mentally healthy refers to something positive.
How can you help your child?
Stick to routines, be consistent, have together-time, involve the family so that everyone uses the same approach.
Observe any changes of behaviour whether eating habits, routines or social behaviour.
Provide lots of opportunity to communicate with your child to share their experiences and ask open ended questions. Be present in the moment.
Regular communication with school – Let your child’s teacher know if you have noticed any changes in behaviour. The heads of school are also always available to support.
Remember to take care of your own well-being – talking to others can be beneficial.
