Change is complex. Establishing a whole or school college approach to mental health is a major transformational task. Yet increasingly this is what schools are expected to deliver. The rewards are clear. Research shows what teachers already know: happier children do better and have higher attendance rates than those whose problems are unresolved.
So how do you go about it? The Anna Freud Centre has launched its 5 Steps to Mental Health and Wellbeing Framework, a simple, free and interactive tool to help schools and college develop a whole setting approach on their own terms.
We will be holding five seminars throughout the year based on each of the steps: Leading change, Working together, Understanding need, Promoting wellbeing and Supporting staff.
About this seminar
This seminar, chaired by our Chief Executive Professor Peter Fonagy, is the third of the series and focuses on our step: Supporting Staff.
Our key note speaker, Education Support's CEO Sinéad Mc Brearty, will be talking about school staff wellbeing based on research conducted by Education Support.
The Anna Freud Centre's Lesley French will be speaking about our Trispace service for schools, and how using a mentalization approach can help support school and college staff. We will also be hearing from a school practitioner about the benefits of surveying staff to understand need and develop support.
Who is this seminar suitable for?
All school leaders, teachers, school staff and mental health workers in schools, educational psychologists, and any allied professionals interested in supporting mental health in schools and colleges.
