Mental Health Training and Wellbeing in Schools

Worth-It offers effective resilience and mental wellbeing training and services for your teachers, staff, pupils, or entire school.

There is an increasing awareness of the responsibility to develop resilience in schools and colleges, for both staff and pupils. It is widely recognised within education and mental health sectors that children and young people’s emotional health and wellbeing has a huge impact on their ability to learn and achieve.

Are you a school looking for mental wellbeing and resilience training for your pupils, staff or school?

In recent years, we are seeing an unprecedented increase in the mental and emotional health needs of children and young people. The recent State of Education Report, identifies that 79% of teachers in both primary and secondary schools reported seeing an increase in stress, depression, anxiety, and panic attacks in their pupils. Not being able to effectively support children and young people increases the strain on school staff’s wellbeing levels and their ability to perform effectively.

It is widely recognised within education and mental health sectors that children and young people’s emotional health and wellbeing has a huge impact on their ability to learn and achieve. Worth-it offers resilience and mental health support for pupils, wellbeing training for staff and bespoke whole school resilience programms, all proven to improve outcomes.

Worth-it have worked with over 150 schools, empowering them to effectively support children and young people improve resilience and wellbeing.

Whole school approach to mental health

Evidence informs us that whole school approaches are best practice for improving the emotional wellbeing and resilience of schools. This is further backed up by recommendations from the Department for Education, Department of Health and Public Health England. Our whole school approach to mental health enables schools to develop a culture and ethos of resilience that benefits the whole school community.

Following collaboration and extensive experience working with a number of multi academy trusts, primary and secondary schools, we have created a robust and effective School Resilience Programme .
