My Happy Mind
At Canon Burrows CE Primary School, we use My Happy Mind to help create a positive mental wellbeing culture in which children build resilience, self-esteem, and character. Grounded in positive psychology and neuroscience, myHappymind is a whole school approach that aims to develop resilient, confident, independent children and enables them to understand how to keep mentally healthy.
We have embedded the myHappymind programme across school to teach our children the science behind their thought and behaviour processes and give them the skills and knowledge to develop their self-regulation and successfully support their mental wellbeing.
My Happy Mind is taught across the whole school in weekly sessions, and consists of 5 units:
The programme helps children to:
- Feel happier
- Know what to do when they feel worried or stressed
- Improve their concentration
- Achieve more of the goals that they set for themselves
- Develop better relationships with friends and families
- Feel great about who they are and have positive self-esteem
