At ICC, we promote positive mental health and wellbeing for everyone in our school community. We are an inclusive school, which aims to support every member of our community, and recognise how important mental health and emotional wellbeing are to our lives. Our Curriculum supports this through relationship, sex and health education which is reviewed regularly and is responsive to the changing needs of our students. Where mental health and wellbeing needs are identified for anyone in the ICC community, our aim is to signpost access to universal and specialist support in line with our mental health and wellbeing policy.
We work closely with the Mental Health Support Team (MHST), now known as Thought-full, the West Sussex Mental Health Support Teams in Schools service. MHST offer support and interventions to students with all aspects of mental health and emotional wellbeing.

The Thought-Full team also provide a variety of helpful information videos on their YouTube page:
