Company news: Monodraught award grant to support mental health assemblies

“We are delighted to be able to support Buckinghamshire Mind by providing a grant to help educate school children about mental health. A key element of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy is partnering with a charity that makes a direct impact in terms of improving the lives of local people. Buckinghamshire Mind is the ideal choice for us.”

Andrew McCubbin, Managing Director, Monodraught Ltd

Buckinghamshire Mind, are now able to embark on a series of mental health awareness assemblies in ten schools around the county.  This follows a successful series of events last year.

The aim of the assemblies is to break down the stigma and discrimination associated with mental health by educating children and young people to enable them to open-up and talk about mental health in school, at home and with friends.

“We know that 1 in 10 children and young people have a diagnosable mental health problem. Buckinghamshire Mind aims to reduce this figure through early intervention and by providing school assemblies and other activities to educate children at an early age.”

Jo Ibbett, Children and Young People’s Services Team Lead, Buckinghamshire Mind

The school assemblies aim to help children to feel more safe and secure while also improving resilience, emotional wellbeing and relationships with peers, family members and teachers. Children will gain an understanding of mental health and that it is as important as physical health. Following the delivery of the assemblies, children should feel more comfortable and confident when talking about their feelings.
