Mental Health Matters
Mental Health Lead
At Chorleywood Primary School we are committed to supporting the emotional well-being of the pupils, staff, and parents. We have appointed Mrs Lewis as our Mental Health Lead; she is very passionate about this area.
If you have any concerns about your child’s mental health and well-being, please contact Mrs Lewis via firstname.lastname@example.org and she will assist in any way she can.
We are delighted to be a stormbreak school. Through being involved in stormbreak we aim to improve children’s mental health through movement, equipping them with sustainable, transferable skills and coping strategies to thrive during the complex demands of growth into adult life.

Mental Health Support for Hertfordshire’s Children and Young People
If your child or teenager is feeling low, anxious, or generally struggling, there are lots of services available to help them all year round. Please always encourage them to talk and ask for help if they need it.
The services listed on Just Talk’s webpage are all free and don’t need a professional referral, so they can be contacted directly by young people and/or their parents/carers. Services listed include Hertfordshire’s new With YOUth Digital Wellbeing Service for ages 5-18, parents and carers and many more, so please take a look: www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/mentalhealthsupportforhertsyoungpeople
