Over the year Naas Community College has worked to promote a school which talks about and promotes positive mental health. Over the year we have had guest speakers, mental health week and anti-bullying week along with emphasis being placed on mental health in SPHE and RE classes and positive thoughts for each week being displayed around the school. Suicide Aware have decided to award the Amber Flag to Naas Community College.
This signifies that Naas CC is a school which aims to:
A) Promote mental health and well-being for all.
B) Prevent mental health problems through increasing awareness, social support, reducing risk factors such as racism, bullying and isolation.
C) Improving quality of life for students/people with mental health problems by promoting recovery through awareness and education.
Congratulations to all staff and students for their hard work over the year!
