Chase students welcome new online support

26th March 2018

Students at The Chase have welcomed a new web resource which helps young people to access specialist advice swiftly and easily.

The new online resource provides information to pupils about how to get advice in areas like mental health issues, drug counselling or other problems such as bullying or concerns about their home life.

As well as having links to online resources, the webpages have phone numbers to allow students to talk direct to people and access some immediate support.

The new pages on the school's website were unveiled last week and West Worcestershire MP Harriett Baldwin visited the school to be briefed on the school's initiative as well as talking to students.

The Government is carrying out a review into the way young people with mental health problems are supported and has pledged £300 million to help schools identify and support pupils quicker.

Harriett commented: "It was really useful to talk to staff about this online initiative and I'm glad to hear the feedback that students think it is a helpful way to get access to help when they need it.

"There are some really good ways for young people to access support and often an online resource is the easiest and quickest way to get help. This site blends both online resources and phone numbers meaning that help is easily and conveniently accessible.

"I am keen to make sure that every local school pupil is able to access this service and the school has taken steps to make sure there are computers around the school where this site can be used safely and confidentially.

"The Government is looking into the wider issue of getting mental health treatment quicker in schools as well as the impact social media is having on young people.

"I look forward to seeing the results of the consultation and to speaking to local schools again about how we can support them to help pupils who have urgent need for help."
