The 20 practical and accessible modules in The Wellbeing Toolkit for Mental Health Leads provide all of necessary resources to enable you to maintain and enhance the well-being of the children and young people that you nurture and support, while also developing staff confidence and whole-school approaches which will support the wellbeing of the whole school community.
This resource provides a knowledge base and set of tools to enable you to support the young people in your care in the most effective and ethically safe manner, drawing on a range of evidence-based approaches that promote mental and emotional health and wellbeing. The tools and strategies can be used easily and effectively by education professionals who are not therapists, but who would like to interact in a more therapeutic, nurturing and informed manner.
This new and innovative programme contains the most recent thinking and definitions around specific difficulties or mental health issues such as anxiety, ADHD, ASD, body image, anorexia, school phobia, grief and loss, trauma and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), attachment issues and mental health issues arising from using social media or online pornography. Reference is made to DSM-V criteria ensuring this is the most up-to-date and cutting-edge resource in terms of supporting and informing Mental Health Leads and their work in both school and the wider community.
