Mental health is a state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her of his community (World Health Organisation).
At Maidstone Grammar School for Girls we aim to promote positive mental health for every member of our community. We pursue this aim using both universal, whole-school approaches and specialised, targeted approaches aimed at vulnerable students in addition to promoting positive mental health and wellbeing. By developing and implementing practical, relevant and effective wellbeing policies and procedures we can promote a safe and stable environment for students affected both directly and indirectly by mental ill health. Our community based approach reflects our school motto – non sibi sed omnibus – not for oneself but for all.
