Leading Whole School Mental Health and Wellbeing Workshop

Developing a whole school approach to mental health and wellbeing is becoming a key priority for all Schools. Benefits of a whole school approach to mental health and wellbeing include improved pupil achievement, staff wellbeing and school outcomes such as attendance, attainment, reduced exclusions, and improved behaviour.

Schools increasingly have a crucial role to play in managing effective strategies for pupil mental health and wellbeing. Good school mental health is a key priority for the Department for Education, but little support has been provided to support schools lead and develop their own whole school approaches.

This introductory workshop for School Leaders or Mental Health and Wellbeing Leads equips participants with the key first steps, evidence, and strategies to lead a whole school approach to mental health and wellbeing.

What will the workshop cover?

During the workshop participants will:

  • Gain insight into the recommendations and guidelines for leading effective whole school approaches to mental health and wellbeing.
  • Be introduced to Worth-it's underpinning evidence based approach to Positive Education (which integrates Positive Psychology and Coaching), gaining school-wide strategies and approaches to take back and apply.
  • Explore the wider benefits of a whole school approach, including school ethos, culture, relationships and the wellbeing of individuals, both staff and pupils.
  • Clarify your school's priorities and starting points for developing whole school mental health and wellbeing.
  • Address any barriers to, and find solutions for engaging all stakeholders including staff, pupils and parents.
  • Map good practice in your school and identify gaps; bringing many aspects of day-to-day school life under the umbrella of wellbeing.

What difference will it make?

By the end of the workshop participants will:

  • Have a clear understanding of an evidence-informed approach to developing whole school mental health and wellbeing.
  • Have increased confidence and skills to effectively lead a whole school approach to mental health and wellbeing in their own school.
  • Be able to identify good practice and reflect on how their school is already effectivity developing mental health and wellbeing.
  • Have identified starting points with and clear practical actions for leading a whole school approach to mental health and wellbeing.
  • Have established links with like-minded school mental health leads, and shared good practice and practical ideas.
