The Southfield Allotment
21st May 2019
Building resilience and preventing mental health problems is key
A sharp focus on promoting wellbeing, building resilience and good mental health will improve outcomes for children and young people, and the nation as a whole. The benefits for individuals, families, business and the economy are clear – increased employability, capability and productivity, reduced absence, reduced demand on services and improved family relationships and happiness.
At Southfield we pride ourselves in promoting the importance of taking care of yourself, both pyhsically and mentally. Our Southfield Allotment is open at playtimes and filled with comfy cushions, blankets and beannags. This to provide children with a safe and cosy space to sit and talk with their friends and aims to promote the positive impact of sharing your thoughts and feelings.
