Improving Wellbeing, Mental Health & Resilience in Education
Creating safe & healthy environments for student success
The saying goes that; "it takes a village to raise a child". When applied to education, this speaks to the importance of going beyond just teaching lessons and the crucial responsibility of the school and teachers in ensuring that a student's wellbeing and mental health are also being looked after.
The Improving Wellbeing, Mental Health & Resilience in Education conference will give delegates the opportunity to listen to and learn from experts and field leaders in student and teaching staff wellbeing and mental health. This will be their chance to learn the necessary skills, share ideas and ask the burning and important questions.
