Webinar Duration: 59 minutes (approx.)
This webinar will provide headteachers, senior leaders, governors, designated mental health leads teachers and practitioners with advice and practical guidance on designing and implementing an effective mental health intervention which is appropriate for children of secondary age.
The mental health and wellbeing of children and young people continues to be a subject of national focus, with research indicating a huge rise in mental health issues in young people since the start of the pandemic. Schools are in a unique position to be able to support pupils, not only through preventative programmes, but also early intervention to avoid escalation of need.
In this webinar, Anna Bateman, subject matter expert on mental health and wellbeing, who has worked in an advisory role for the DfE, explains common signs and symptoms of emerging mental health conditions, and what schools can do in terms of early intervention and facilitating treatment.
