Building Mentally Healthy Schools
Here at Laughology, we know that you’re working hard to look after the mental health and wellbeing of staff and pupils at your school. But coping in times of change or challenge can only be done if we have the skills in our mental health and wellbeing ‘toolbox’.
Supporting ourselves and others with mental health isn’t something we naturally know how to do. Coping skills need to be taught and learned in order for us to look after our mental health successfully, so we’ve put together three of our most popular mental health blog posts to help you. From building positive relationships between members of staff to helping children develop the necessary coping skills, we’ve got you covered.
By putting these skills into practice, you’ll continue to grow a mentally healthy school.

We have added some quick activities for your class below that will help make them smile.
