Amber Flag

The AMBER FLAG initiative aims to encourage schools to promote and actively bring about a culture change in the promotion of positive mental health within the educational system and other organisations. It is to enhance the already good work that is going on where mental health is concerned by offering an award.

There is wonderful work going on daily in our school.

The Amber Flag acknowledges these efforts in the promotion of “Positive Mental Health”.

It becomes a daily topic of conversation leading to a cultural shift where mental health becomes “The Norm” leading to the breaking down of “Stigma” that is associated with mental health resulting in individuals seeking help sooner, when mental health issues arise.

The Amber Flag aims to:

  1. Promote mental health and well-being for all.
  2. Prevent mental health problems through increasing awareness, social
    support, reducing risk factors such as racism, bullying and isolation.
  3. Improving quality of life for students/people with mental health
    problems by promoting recovery through awareness and education.
