Supporting mental health and well-being in your classroom
Education Consultant, Lorraine Petersen OBE outlines why supporting mental health and well-being in your classroom has become such an important issue within schools. The session makes teachers more aware of the mental health difficulties that their students may have and why these may be increasing. It will consider the DfE guidance on teaching Health Education which must be implemented by September 2020 and the impact this will have on class teachers. Strategies will also be provided for teachers to ensure mental health and wellbeing is supported in their classroom.
