Earlier this month, Compass Changing Lives attended an “Easter Eggstravaganza” at Lady Manners Secondary School in Bakewell, to introduce children and families to the emotional wellbeing support they offer.

The “Easter Eggstravaganza” was an event for Primary aged children and their families, and acted as an introduction to Lady Manners school for those who would soon be transitioning into Secondary Education. Children took part in Easter egg hunts, “Easter Science” activities, and crafts, while having the opportunity to meet staff and students from the school.

As a Mental Health Support Team that counts Lady Manners among their Centres of Excellence, Compass Changing Lives were present to raise awareness of the support options available to children at school and beyond.

Nicola Wood, Supervising Practitioner for the Derbyshire Dales area, had this to say about the event:

“Over 150 families, children and young people attended the event with lots of interest and conversation taking place with the Compass Changing Lives staff.  It supported the building of connection within the community, and also to develop an understanding of what an MHST is, the support available as well as getting to know the team and interventions offered.”

Compass Changing Lives regularly attends community events like this one, working with schools to build a “Whole School Approach” to mental health and wellbeing support for children and young people in the Derbyshire area. For more information about the schools we work with, please click here.
