Primary School

Positive school environments play a central part in enhancing mental health awareness, tackling stigma, and promoting wellbeing for children.

Mental health in the classroom

Primary schools all over Ireland work tirelessly during the year to promote mental health in the classroom, to teach students about wellbeing and to instill positive attitudes towards mental health in their students. This work is critical in raising awareness, teaching students how to manage their mental health and tackling the stigma that is so often associated with mental health.

Mental health in the classroom

We provide primary school teachers across the country with free resources and ideas of how they can bring wellness and mental health into their classroom.

We also run various initiatives and events throughout the year where teachers can receive mental health training, while our School Portal enables teachers to showcase what their schools are doing to promote mental health and get ideas from other schools across the country.

Details of how to get involved and all of our upcoming activity are available below.
