Education Courses

The essential role that the education sector can play to support the mental health, wellbeing and development of children and young people cannot be underestimated. Whilst we recognise the real and positive difference staff working in education can make, we also understand the challenges this can present. As such, alongside supporting the mental health and wellbeing of pupils, a priority area for us is supporting the mental health and wellbeing of those working in schools.

We don’t expect those working in education to become experts in mental health. Through providing online and face to face training to increase awareness and understanding, we want to empower and offer pragmatic guidance to assist all staff in continuing to make a positive difference.
