Mental Health Awareness Week 2021

It is still a very challenging time for schools, both for staff as well as pupils.

Keeping mentally well is vital…


Lockdown was very hard for children and especially those who were already struggling with their learning, relationships or mental health, for whatever reason.

This Mental Health Awareness week we want to make schools aware of the wellbeing and resilience support Eikon offers schools, and suggest three ways in which schools can support Eikon to continue our work.


How Eikon can help schools


We recognise the urgent need to address the emotional wellbeing and mental health issues young people are facing right now. Evidence shows that improved resilience and wellbeing leads to improved academic attainment and achievement.

A large proportion of Eikon’s work takes place in and through schools. The support we offer includes:
