MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL HEALTH IN SCHOOLS: EFFECTIVE STRATEGIES AND SUPPORT
A new online course for anyone working with young people at school
Supporting and responding to the growing number of pupils with mental health needs is a challenge for many schools: a recent survey found that 98% of teachers had come into contact with pupils experiencing mental health difficulties. This “Mental and Emotional Health in Schools” online course will equip school staff with strategies to support good mental and emotional health of their pupils, and recognise and respond to signs of poor mental health. The course is interactive, encouraging participants to reflect on their own experiences and, by looking at different case studies, think through how useful strategies could be used in their own context.
