The four modules are designed to cover all eight principles outlined by Public Heath England to embed a whole school approach to promote children and young people’s emotional health and wellbeing. These principles are used alongside theories and approaches to youth mental health as well as real life experiences of trainers and delegates.
Module 1 explores a whole school approach and ethos to champion wellbeing, build resilience, promote respect and value diversity. This module introduces how to assess current provision of mental health and develop a robust and sustainable plan.
Module 2 covers timely, effective and accurate identification, support and referrals for mental health. Delegates will be provided with tools to map out internal, local and national support routes for young people. It also outlines strategies for robust monitoring of impact.
Module 3 looks at developing the wider curriculum to integrate social and emotional skills which promote resilience in both students and staff and ensuring staff have the skills and tools to support their own, their colleagues and young people’s wellbeing.
Module 4 explores strategies to create an environment where school, young people, parents and the wider community work together to promote positive mental health and where all stakeholders’ voices are heard and valued.
