Amber Flag

What is the Pieta House Amber Flag initiative?

The Pieta House Amber Flag initiative recognises the individual efforts of primary schools to create healthy, inclusive environments that support mental well-being. This involves working together towards a happier, healthier school that eradicates the stigmas associated with mental health issues.

To be awarded the Amber Flag we will be hosting a mental health awareness event, doing a fundraiser for Pieta House and undertaking regular activities to promote positive mental health.

The programme encourages teamwork and student contributions and works with school staff to include a peer-support element.

Weekly meetings are held on Wednesday’s at lunchtime and there are representatives from 1st class upwards,
