Leading a Culture of Wellbeing and Positive Mental Health

People come first

ABOUT THIS PROGRAMME

This virtual programme has been specifically designed to support Wellbeing and Mental Health Leads, school leaders and staff in how they establish and develop a culture of wellbeing and positive mental health for all members of the organisation. The sessions aim to give participants a deeper understanding of the more common mental health issues, experienced by adults within the workplace, and how they can recognise and support individuals who may be experiencing these in their own situation. During these virtual modules, participants will explore practical methods and a range of practical tools for promoting positive wellbeing within the professional culture of the school and how they can seek to build positive mental health, wellbeing and resilience, for all.
