Do you value the emotional wellbeing of your students and staff so that the best possible standards of teaching and learning can be achieved?

Are you concerned about the welfare, stress and anxiety placed on students during examination time?

Do you want to have the knowledge, skills and strategies necessary to support and address mental and emotional health in your school?


The Ultimate Understanding of Mental and Emotional Health in Schools is a course that has been designed to prepare you to meet the challenges and needs of those who are desperate for your help. You will begin to recognise the warning signs of depression, anxiety, stress, eating disorders, self-harm and suicide that may have previously not been noticed. We will give you practical strategies that you can use and share in your schools and we will make sure you are ready to support not just the children you teach, but your colleagues and yourself.
