Mental Health Training For Parents, Schools & Organisations

Schools & Youth Organisations

As a school or organisation you want to do all you can to protect the wellbeing of your staff and students – this is where mental health training comes in, as cliche as it might be: “knowledge is power”.

Empower your staff to look after themselves, and look out for those around them by enabling them to recognise the signs of poor or worsening mental health, and provide the skills they need, to take control.

How can I help you?

-Training for your staff
-Assemblies or talks for staff and pupils
-Workshops for older students

Training your staff will mean:

As an employer, you will be better equipped to meet your legal responsibility to help your employees and meet the core standards set out in the ‘Thriving at Work’ report commissioned by the government in 2017.

And you’ll be able to do it with greater compassion and understanding – building better relationships with your team and growing stronger together as a result.

You school or organisation will have a network of people they can turn to when things are difficult
Your students benefit from having leaders who genuinely know what to do, and can have confidence in dark times
You’re less likely to lose staff to unnecessary sick days due to presenteeism as your team will be better able to handle tough moments
As a school, your mental health culture will improve, as will your strength as a team
Coming together as an organisation or school to recognise red flags, be aware of mental health triggers such as trauma, pressure and stress will ensure you adhere to your mental health policy swiftly

You can access funding for the training – so that it doesn’t have to impact on your normal school budget.
