Welcome to our mental health information and support page. At Shiphay Learning Academy, we have been extremely fortunate to have been given the opportunity to work with the NHS's Mental Health Support Teams (MHST) as a part of a trailblazing project to improve the access and the skills that children and young people have to support their mental health and wellbeing. To make a self-referral for a Wellbeing Conversation with the Mental Health Support Team, please click on the link below.
As a part of this project we have established some resources (below) that you may find useful and can offer information across a range of factors that can influence a person's mental health.

Inside Out has moved viewers young and old to take a look inside their own minds. As you likely know by now, much of the film takes place in the head of an 11-year-old girl named Riley, with five emotions - Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, and Disgust - embodied by characters who help Riley navigate her world. The film has some deep things to say about the nature of our emotions. There are some fundamental messages smartly embedded within Inside Out‘s inventive storytelling and mind-blowing animation; they enrich the film without weighing it down. But they are conveyed strongly enough to provide a foundation for discussion among children and adults alike. Some of the most memorable scenes in the film double as teachable moments for the classroom or dinner table.
Why not take time out to share this film together. Below is a short clip to give you a flavour of what you can expect.
