Over the past few decades there has been an increase in children and young people (CYP) experiencing mental health difficulties in both primary and secondary schools. It is estimated that 1 in 10 CYP will be suffering from MH problems (aged between 5 – 16 years). A further 15% have less severe problems that put them at increased risk of developing mental health problems in the future. This training centres around an evidence based model to help protect and promote the emotional health and wellbeing of the whole school community.

The training will help you to:

  • Explore the concepts of emotional wellbeing and mental health, and have a clearer understanding of what contributes to these
  • Introduce the eight principles of a whole school approach to emotional wellbeing and mental health
  • Reflect upon how children with emotional/mental health difficulties are identified
  • Consider protective factors and building resilience for good mental health
  • Be aware of classroom resources for promoting emotional wellbeing and mental health
  • Raise awareness of the importance of staff wellbeing
  • Review current practice and how this could be improved to enhance wellbeing
