At Forest Hall School, we believe in promoting positive mental health and emotional wellbeing. Prioritising the wellbeing of students and staff ensures that exceptional teaching and learning can take place, and that the school is a community where everyone feels able to thrive.
Forest Hall School is a community where we want everyone to feel supported, safe and happy.
Students at Forest Hall School meet and work with a number of role models and organisations who represent wider society. We work collaboratively with a range of national and international groups - Sisters in Strength, Stonewall, Hope Not Hate, Samaritans and Mind to name but a few. Students benefit enormously from the involvement of these organisations and people.
UK Addiction Treatment Group
Although we do not often talk about it, experimenting with drugs and alcohol can happen at any time, and sometimes there is pressure from people around you – even from your friends – to try things you might not want to. It might not be clear what to do, or who can help.
To support our students, Whitecross Hereford is working closely with the UK Addiction Treatment Group (www.ukat.co.uk/v123/) who are experts in this field. They can provide students with information about drugs and alcohol so that they are made fully aware of the dangers that come with them.
They will be at school for our CCD day in March to interact with students and talk about drugs, alcohol and mental health. They have written a very interesting guide which students and parents can read through and discuss all of the topics raised during the session. The UKAT student guide to drugs and alcohol can be found by clicking this link www.ukat.co.uk/ukat-student-guide-september-2020/v122/ ).
