World Mental Health Day 10th November 2019 Resources for schools and school leaders
6th Nov 2019
Mental health and wellbeing should be ‘everybody’s business’ and with 50% of mental illnesses starting before the age of 14, teachers are often on the frontline when it comes to mental health and wellbeing.
To mark World Mental Health Day on 10th October we’re sharing some practical and informative resources for primary school pupils and staff to help boost mental health. The resources aim to give school leaders and staff the opportunity to talk about the importance of good mental health and to think about ways to help support the wellbeing of staff and pupils
