Mental Health and Wellbeing

Your child can access links to Mental Health and Wellbeing support services via their Braunton Academy homepage, but the resources below have support and advice for parents too. We also work with the Mental Health in Schools Team and school nurse to provide support for students and their parents.


Kooth is an online mental wellbeing community. Access is free, safe and anonymous.
