Mental Health and Wellbeing

“Mental health is a state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.” – World Health Organisation

At Penryn College, we aim to promote positive mental health for every member of our staff and student body. We pursue this aim using both universal, whole-school approaches, and specialised, targeted approaches aimed at vulnerable students.

Mr Ben Gillo, our SEN Head of Faculty & Mental Health Lead is responsible for developing a sustainable whole-school approach to mental health at Penryn College. If you have any questions regarding our support, please get in touch.

This section of our website provides advice and guidance to help support parents, carers, and young people. Please navigate through the tabs to access the different areas of support and guidance.

Additionally, please follow our Health & Wellbeing social media channels, which feature additional information and signposting to events, plus thoughts and strategies to help build positive mental health and wellbeing.
