As a school we have introduced a program to all year groups called myHappymind.
myHappymind is all based around helping children to understand how their brain works and to support them in developing positive skills and habits to be their very best selves! The children spend twenty minutes each Monday learning about different aspects of their brains and how to manage their mental health and record their progress in a myHappymind journal.
myHappymind is an award winning program for schools & nurseries, families and organisations. It teaches preventative habits that support positive mental health, resilience and self esteem. All of the concepts taught are based on science and research and grounded in neuroscience and positive psychology. The program is delivered via an innovative technology platform making learning easy, convenient and fun. myHappymind is proud to be commissioned by the NHS up and down the U.K. due to the incredible impact the program has on reducing Child and Adolescent Mental Health referrals along with the overall improvements to the wellbeing of children, staff and parents.
The myHappymind curriculum is grounded in scientific research and helps children to:
Know what to do when they feel worried or stressed
Improve their focus and learn more
Achieve more of the goals that they set for themselves
Develop better relationships with friends and families
Feel great about who they are and have positive self esteem
In this section
myHappymind is delivered in schools by class teachers through a series of interactive lessons and then the children apply these learnings throughout the day. To further embed this learning and ensure that parents are able to engage in these topics with your child, myHappymind has developed a set of resources for parents. These resources can be accessed online via a computer, or through a phone based app. The resources allow children to continue to practise some of the habits they have developed at school, such as happy breathing, for parents to learn more about what they are learning in the program. Also included are activities for families to do together at home, to complement the in-school lessons.
To access these materials just go to https://myhappymind.org/parent-resources and enter your name, email, and authentication code. Please contact the school for your authentication code.
