All children should have the change to live happy and healthy lives

Our emotional wellbeing is just as important as our physical health. But when it comes to our children, there are so many pressures put on them that sometimes their emotional wellbeing starts to suffer. When that happens, it’s our job to make sure they understand how to cope with the stresses of life in a healthy way, so they can develop the resilience they need to lead happy, healthy lives.

At the Holistic Healthcare Group, we partner with schools to create conditions where both mental and physical health thrive, and engage the school community with programs to support student wellbeing. Our tailored programs are designed to suit the individual needs of the school, ensuring students have all the information they need to make the right decisions for them.

Why Manage Wellbeing In Schools?

We might not like to think about it, but:

  • Around 1 in 9 children aged 5-15 now suffer from some form of mental health disorder, with the biggest culprits being anxiety, depression and other emotional disorders.
  • Mental health issues are the second most common reason for children to take time off school.
  • Children from low-income families are 4 times more likely to experience mental health problems than children from higher-income families.
  • Among LGBTQ+ young people, 7 out of 10 girls and 6 out of 10 boys described experiencing suicidal thoughts. These children and young people were around 3 times as likely as others to have made a suicide attempt at some point.

With new pressures put on children every day, from exams and career choices to new social interactions and a changing landscape for their future, it can be difficult for them to manage their own emotions and physical wellbeing, as well as the challenge of growing up.

But despite so many children needing support, only 1 in 4 young people will actively seek help on their own. Instead, research has shown that children and young people are more likely to use informal support sources (like online support), or seek the support offered by primary care professionals. And while many schools offer basic wellbeing programs that cover things like stress management, many students feel they could benefit from more tailored support from industry professionals.

That’s where we want to help. We believe that all children should have the chance to live happy and healthy lives. We help children manage their own mental, physical and emotional wellbeing in a safe environment.

Our school wellness programmes are designed to empower young people to take care of their minds, bodies and the people around them, building a foundation for lifelong learning and health. We help children understand that their body is one huge interconnected system, how to treat it in a holistic way.

Tailored Wellbeing

We don’t believe that every therapy is right for everyone, which is why we offer tailored school wellness programmes based on what you believe your students need. This can range from running assemblies on breathing exercises, to having more of a presence in the school and offering regular lessons on managing mental health, stress and pain. We all know it’s OK not to be OK, but we need to show our young people how to cope effectively when they are struggling.

Some of the therapies included in our school’s programme include:

  • Counselling
  • Reiki
  • Reflexology
  • Massage
  • Aromatherapy
  • Homeopathy
  • Hypnotherapy
  • Life coaching
  • Psychology
  • Yoga
  • Physiotherapy
  • Osteopathy

And much more.

Every one of our practitioners looks at the human system from a slightly different angle, which is what allows us to help every child find the right solution for them. We can work alongside your school to build a wellbeing programme to suit the needs of your students.
