Parent support for mental health issues
We not only support pupils with mental health but want to support parents and carers to support themselves.
We offer a range of services and support for parents and carers including training to be a mental health first aider- this is an accredited course and is delivered by our own staff.
We have also produced a parent support leaflet for the Dewsbury family of schools:
