The 1757 Voices Charter

We, the 1757 Southend students who gave our opinions in the Southend Youth Council Mental Health survey, believe in better Mental Health and Emotional Well-being provision in schools for all Southend pupils. Our views on our personal Mental Health experiences, the available support services and what we think our schools could provide for us have inspired this Charter, which condenses these wishes and gives greater transparency for our aims.

Based directly from our survey responses, these Charter terms specify how we feel our schools can ensure every Southend pupil is better supported with their Mental Health and Emotional Well-being in four key areas: by strengthening trust, having better promotion, increasing support and by creating a more open and safe school environment.

Following the very successful launch of The 1757 Voices Charter on Monday 25th March 2019 we would like to invite you to officially sign up to the Charter. You will be asked a few questions to enable us to contact you annually to provide evidence of how you are delivering the principles of the Charter.
