4 ‘Time To Change’ Supporting a Heart, Head and Hands approach to Healthy School Enhancement. Good morning, I’m delighted to have been invited to the Launch of the SE Time To Change programme and would like to recommend this programme to you by illustrating how it will support my role at Kent Community Health Trust, taking a Heart, Head and Hands approach to our Healthy School Enhancement model. Let me explain. Liz McAvan Children and Young People Wellbeing Manager Health and Wellbeing Directorate Kent Community Health NHS Trust

5 KCHT Transformation Programme
Core Values Caring with Compassion Listening Responding and Empowering Leading Through Partnerships Learning Sharing and Innovating Striving For Excellence Strategic Vision “To be the provider of choice by delivering excellent care and improving the health of our communities” Kent Community Health Trust provides clinical and health and wellbeing services across the large and diverse population of Kent and to assure quality, we monitor performance and service developments by what we call our ‘Values In To Action’ framework. This is a matrix of the heart of the organisation- KCHT core values against the head - our strategic vision, and then implemented through the hands motif; which represents service specific business objectives. So, as a provider of choice, commissioned by Kent PH to deliver a Kent Healthy School Enhancement model, Id like to use this same framework to illustrate the value of working in an integrated partnership with Time To Change on the important business of improving outcomes for children and young people. Business Objectives: To improve outcomes for children by strengthening integrated partnerships.

6 Caring with Compassion
Prevention Pays: Our Children Deserve Better, “My generation unquestioningly expected our future to be better than our parents and grandparents. But our children and grandchildren face a far more challenging outlook. We need a renewed focus on children” “This report questions whether we have got the balance right in our society and should act as a wake-up call. The evidence is crystal clear and the opportunity is huge investing in children is a certain way of improving the economic health of our nation, as well as our children’s well-being.” (Professor Dame Sally C Davies, Chief Medical Officer; Oct 2013) ‘Time to Change’ will help schools engage with strategic objectives of Kent’s Healthy School Enhancement; Developing healthy behaviours Supporting raised achievement. Helping to reduce inequalities Promoting social inclusion. Caring with Compassion; The Healthy School model is a strategic, evidenced based approach to health improvement by the provision of a universal health offer within a caring, supportive environment. The NHSP was very effective at engaging schools in making improvements across key areas of PSHE, Healthy Eating, Physical Activity and Emotional Health and Wellbeing to ensure every day experiences would be conducive to health. However, as the Chief Medical Officer’s recent report confirms there is much more to do to ‘care with compassion’, when the evidence shows that outcomes for children and young people in this county continue to compare unfavourably with those other European nations. As you can see by these two quote, the report pulls no punches in its call to action and there are specific recommendation for young people’s mental health, in particular that PHE should work with the PSHE Association to strengthen the evidence on strategies to build young people’s resilience. This is why Kent retains a Healthy School Enhancement model, designed to encourage schools to continue to support the local HWB priorities in a way which is meaningful to school priorities, and it seems to me that ‘Time To Change’ is a perfect example of what we men by ‘meaningful’; challenging discrimination is central to school policy and duty of care whilst the Time To Change training and curriculum resources can enhance mental health awareness as part of the whole school provision for PSHE Education- an need highlighted in the last Ofsted report. So whilst undertaking this very relevant work, schools will be contributing to MH strategy by creating the conditions which will encourage young people with mental health problems to seek help early, and a supprotive environment to aid recovery following an episode of mental ill health.

7 Listening Responding and Empowering
Curriculum planning & work with outside agencies Policy development Assessing recording & reporting (HSEM) Teaching & learning Partnership with Parents/carers & local communities WHOLE SCHOOL APPROACH Staff CPD, health and welfare needs Leadership, management & managing change Giving pupils a voice Now, all schools which engage with Kent HSEM have already achieved HSS and so will have a school culture and environment which is responsive to the expressed needs of the members of that school community. Pupil Voice is an integral feature of a healthy school, as is the collaborations across all school stakeholders; parents/carers, local managers, staff leaders and governors to identify school level priorities and be empowered to develop a planned programme of school improvement activity across different aspects of the organisation to address these. In Kent schools we have a range of peer led initiatives; school council, peer mentors, mediators, health champions and a very strong Kent and Medway Youth Mental Health forum, who I know will be up for the Time To Change challenge, which will provides new platform for Pupil Voice activities through its scheme of peer advocacy and social marketing. Provision of pupil support services School culture & environment

8 Leading Through Partnerships
‘Mind The Gap’; KCC Inequalities Plan Marmot’ life course approach to PH Outcomes Framework: Healthy Weight Yr R, Yr 6 U 18 Conceptions Smoking prevalence 15 years Harmful effects of alcohol misuse Targeted focus on young people who have complex or multiple needs ‘Time to Change’ will enhance local healthy school partnerships promoting ‘No Health Without Mental Health’; Schools, young people, parent/carers Health Providers Alternative Curriculum Providers Youth and Community Groups LA and Borough Council Services Voluntary Sector Agencies Business and commercial sector Local forums and action groups So, inclusive partnership working needs to be a hall mark of a Healthy School and also for the Children and Young People Wellbeing team leading the healthy school programme. Traditionally, my service partnerships are with those agencies in KCC and 12 Borough and District Councils, which have joint responsibilities to deliver on CYP priorities identified in the county inequalities action plan. Whilst KCHT is not commissioned to deliver young people’s mental health services, I prescribe to the principles of No Health Without Mental Health, and am confident that working with the Time To Change board will definitely enhance our local health and education partnership arrangements. Already the Time To Change small grants scheme has inspired numerous initiatives from voluntary and community sector agencies, which I have not previously known about or worked with, and I anticipate this hive of activity across the county will provide a wealth of new resources and sources of support for participating schools to call on when implementing their own action plan.

9 Learning Sharing and Innovating
‘Time to Change’ complements the key principles of Kent’s Healthy School Enhancement model ; Data led Founded on national guidance, Evidence based practice Promotes local initiatives Builds capacity Increases the knowledge bank The value of such rich collaboration in the range of approaches, expertise and specialist functions, which partners can bring to the complex task of promoting holistic mental health needs of young people. However, it is important to me that all such local innovations will be founded on evidence based practices, and it is also reassuring to know that whilst participating agencies, including my own, will be enjoying the opportunities to learn share and innovate, the evaluation role of the TTC project team will make sure that all subsequent data and public health intelligence generated will be properly collated, analysed and reported to help build our knowledge bank of what works for YP’ mental health.

10 Striving For Excellence
For the CYP Wellbeing Service; 130+ schools for age range 10% yr olds, inc 7% post 16 ‘feel sad or depressed most days’ (NFER) For schools; Behaviour and Safety Attendance Achievement Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of the pupils Extent to which the education provided meets the needs of the range of pupils Safeguarding ‘Time to Change’ can be embedded to Kent Healthy School Enhancement model, For schools to evidence to Ofsted how they plans to ‘narrow the gap’. Finally, how does working with TTC help us to bring about excellent outcomes- you will note my organisation values use the term striving for excellence, which is indicative of the size and complexity of this challenge. So what does that look like in Kent? Yes, we do live up to our reputation as the Garden of England, yet we have significant pockets of deprivation, which is a known risk to MH. We have some of the highest performing schools in the country and some with higher than average levels of Additional and SEN, both situations bringing different stressors for MH. And, as young people everywhere, Kent youth live their lives outside of schools, where the wall paper of mass media messages, celebrity culture, high commercialised youth marketing and social networking, which creates for some a toxic mix of influences to confuse emotional health and wellbeing, feelings of self work and healthy relationships. Little wonder that in Kent’s YP survey of 2007, 10% of respondents reported feeling sad or depressed most days, a tendency which increased with the 16+ group. Also, given the prevalence of conduct and emotional disorders identified in Kent MH need assessment, it seems likely that the theory of 3 people in each secondary school class being at risk, is one which could apply to Kent. Wth over 130 secondary Kent schools serving the 14-18yr olds target group, that is a challenging level of need and I am, therefore, very appreciative of the additional support from Time To Change to help build capacity of my service team in their strivings! Likewise, it is my experience that Kent teachers understand well the increasing societal pressures on their pupils at a time when good behaviour, attendance, achievement is at a premium. So, I am sure Kent schools will be welcoming TTC with open arms to help them put schemes in place which will help promote mental health of their pupils, and, in turn, hit the related criteria within the Ofsted Inspection framework. As the 3 TTC evaluation schools have already been identified for Kent, we have had opportunity to work with the TTC project team to identify how the programme’s requirements can be captured, tracked and measured through the Kent Healthy School Enhancement plan, which will ease the process for schools, whilst also providing robust evidence for the partnerships to show how we all use our heart, heads and hands to narrow the gap. Congratulations to the TTC team for their impressive achievements to date. I know the SE is able to benefit from the work which has been trialled in the Midlands, which provides ample ways for individuals, organisations and agencies to get on board, and my last slide is a little tribute to your canny choice of date to get the SE programme off the launch pad….

25 Our Experience

26 The Challenge Last October ‘Time to Change’ launched its first ever competition in schools to get students talking about mental health. Students were asked to design a campaign that challenges people’s attitudes and behaviour towards people with mental health problems. Over 50 schools in the West Midlands area signed up to take part in the competition.

27 How Students from the Nuneaton Academy got involved
Students and Teachers in the Academy took part with campaigns using; Creative writing Short film Art Baking (Including a message on biscuits about time to change and how to make a pledge) Power points Stalls at parents evening Posters around the school Information on school website Article in school news letter

28 My experience being involved in the campaign
Lead Staff member for the Academy promoting the campaign Supporting the Wellbeing Student Leader group with their ideas to promote this Created a Form Time Programme for a period of 6 weeks that explored mental wellbeing and lead up to the competition Providing materials and making links resources available to whole school Finding any opportunity to get the message spread throughout the academy and community Creating an online page for students and staff that explore mental health, 5 a day to improved mental wellbeing and links to Time to Change Website

29 How its impacted on my work
Staff, students and parents becoming increasingly more open talking about mental health issues Students with a mental health illness are talking more openly about their experiences. Staff and students understand the importance of my role supporting students with their wellbeing. Everybody talking a more active role in breaking the taboo surrounding mental health illness This time last year we asked 108 students at random what they understood in relation to wellbeing only 8 students could provide some kind of response. This year we are in the process of collating feedback from the same number of students. Already from 70 responses I have 47 qualitative responses that discuss how we take care of our body and mind, as well as attitudes towards others

30 Why wanted to explore this
To generate greater awareness about mental wellbeing and to allow staff, students and local community to be more informed of how mental illness does not discriminate anyone and impacts on all areas of life. To help staff, students and the community to be able to talk openly about mental health in positive manner which would allow those with an illness to be able to access support they may need without feeling judged. With a high level of students in our school experiencing mental health illness to help normalise their experiences

31 What we achieved and unexpected benefits/successes
Young carers have come forward in relation to supporting parent/s with a mental illness Students, staff and parents talking more openly about mental health issues. Student and parent feedback given to Head Teacher to say how effectively the issues of mental health have been addressed. Sharing Time to Change message at a student voice network meeting National/Local news What we achieved and unexpected benefits/successes Positive language associated with mental health with students, parents and teachers. A year on and the assemblies we delivered had a lasting impression with staff and students. From this we have developed a strong student leader well-being group. New challenges are being accepted by students. 223 pledges
