Looking after mental health and wellbeing are very important within Sacred Heart College and the pastoral care of our students is seen as a priority. The College has 2.6FTE Psychologists who work closely with staff, students, parents and a range of professionals outside the College to support students experiencing a range of mental health and learning issues.


As research clearly shows, adolescence is the peak age of onset for mental illness but due to stigma (which is now thankfully reducing), many of our students and families do not realise just how common it can be. Through accessing reliable information, having ongoing training initiatives and taking all opportunities to raise awareness, we are keen to see the conversations about mental health and wellbeing continue within the school.


SchoolTV is a very useful resource for parents and caregivers to access a range of reliable information and special reports on current topics affecting our young people. Should any parent or caregiver have concerns regarding the wellbeing of their child, please discuss these with the relevant PCG teacher and Assistant Deputy Principal in the first instance.
