Webinar Runtime: 39 Minutes
This webinar will provide school leaders, headteachers and all school staff with practical advice and guidance on how they can support the mental health and wellbeing of pupils during the COVID-19 restrictions and Christmas period.
Evidence suggests that national lockdowns and local restrictions have impacted on children’s wellbeing. A YoungMinds survey carried out towards the end of lockdown 1.0 found that 80% of young people agreed that COVID-19 had made their mental health worse. 87% of young people felt lonely or isolated.
With the festive season upon us and tighter measures still in place, seeing friends, family and re-uniting with loved ones is much harder, which will only heighten feelings of loneliness and isolation.
In this webinar, mental health and wellbeing expert, Anna Bateman, explains how schools can look out for the signs that pupils may be experiencing wellbeing issues, how they can help them cope with feelings of separation and what techniques they can implement to help build their resilience.
