  • Mental Health Media Charter

    The Teach Well Alliance is proud to endorse Natasha Devon's Mental Health Media Charter

    We all have physical health. We all have mental health. We can become mentally unwell just as we can become physically unwell.

    The Teach Well Alliance talks and writes about mental ill-health in a way that avoids labels, stigma and judgement and encourages support, understanding and, where appropriate, professional help.
