Recent years have seen an unprecedented increase in the mental and emotional health needs of children and young people. With young people’s emotional health and wellbeing having a huge impact on their ability to learn and achieve, good school mental health has become a key priority for the Department for Education. There is now an increasing responsibility upon schools and colleges to develop effective approaches to mental health and wellbeing.

How our support works

Our pick and mix menu of evidence-based services empower schools to apply sustainable and practical ways that promote wellbeing and prevent mental health problems. Our support is positive, proactive, accessible and non-clinical. We provide consultancy, coaching, training and resources that enable schools to increase capacity and capability. Enabling them to confidently lead their own effective, personalised whole school approaches to mental health and wellbeing.

The effective development of a sustainable and embedded Whole School Approach to mental health takes several academic years. To date, our work has contributed to mental health and wellbeing of 136 schools at various stages of their journey to whole school mental health and wellbeing.

There is no wrong place to start, many schools we work with don't realise how much they are already doing that contributes to the development of positive mental health and wellbeing, just chatting to us will help you identify the stage you are already at.

Leading whole school mental health

Our coaching sessions, strategy workshops and school culture evaluations support school leaders to embed sustainable cultures of mental health, wellbeing and resilience, and to evaluate their effectiveness.

Staff training and development

We specialise in training whole staff teams and specialist practitioners in a range of strategies and resources that increase capacity to support pupil mental health. Our staff development enables schools to embed wellbeing into the classroom, curriculum and ethos.

Staff wellbeing support

Our staff wellbeing workshops and coaching sessions support the development of staff wellbeing and resilience. We also empower school staff to champion and lead their own effective and sustainable, staff wellbeing initiatives.

Teaching mental wellbeing

Our workshops for pupils and teaching resources explicitly teach skills for mental wellbeing. We also support schools to develop their own taught mental wellbeing lessons.

Supporting vulnerable pupils

Our training enables schools to develop and provide targeted early prevention programmes for pupils at risk of developing mental health problems. We also provide training and resources that enable pupils to lead wellbeing support for peers in their school.

Working with parents and carers

We support schools to work with parents and carers to improve the wellbeing and resilience of pupils. Our practical workshops provide parents with strategies that they can use at home to support the approaches to mental health, wellbeing and resilience being learned at school.

Since working with Worth-it staff are more aware of the impact of emotional wellbeing and we are more mindful when dealing with students, this has resulted in pupil improvements in behaviour and positive staff and student relationships.
