This was one of the key messages delivered as part of an inaugural event held last week to strengthen the capacity of the local school communities to promote mental health.

The planning committee used “design thinking” to take an innovative and collaborative approach to asking “How teachers can promote mental health in schools?” Participants had the opportunity to explore the role of ‘One Good Teacher’ and the importance of self-care in supporting youth mental health.

Access to local mental health support services and building mental health promoting activities into schools using the “Five a day for Wellbeing” model were on the agenda.

Research shows being active, connecting with others, taking notice, getting involved and giving back are key factors for our collective wellbeing. Support for further education and training activities was highlighted as a welcome next step following this initiative.

The Samaritans, Jigsaw, Waterford Sports Partnership, HSE, WIT, Children and Young Peoples Services Committee, teachers and staff from each Waterford Post Primary schools as well as members of the organising committee were present on the day. The event was made possible through the support of the Lions Club and the HSE Regional Suicide Resource Office.

The organising committee included Ken McCormick, Educationalist; Karen Keogh, TY Co-ordinator Newtown School; Tracy Nugent & Leighann Ryan Culleton , HSE Regional Suicide Resource Office; Susan Scully, HSE Health Promotion Officer; Rory Fitzgerald, Samaritans; Tony Lee, GP and Waterford Lions Club.
