Mental Health and Wellbeing Digital Conference: Cultivating a culture of Resilience in Education

Event Date: 8 February 2023

This conference has been designed for early years, primary schools, specialist schools and secondary schools and will examine how we can support the mental health of whole school communities and how to adopt, implement and embed an effective and sustainable approach to wellbeing.


The mental health and wellbeing of children and young people has been severely impacted over the last few years. Recent data from NHS Digital from September 2021 suggests that one in six young people now has a probable mental health disorder.

It has been well documented that a ‘whole-school approach’ to mental health has the best chance of supporting children’s wellbeing and their future educational attainment.

Join us for a programme packed with timely keynotes and practical workshops that will have a meaningful impact on your staff and students.

Highlights:

  • Culture: ensure that your school/setting is a proactive, healthy setting that can self-regulate from students to staff members
  • Engage: staff, students and parents with new approaches to develop a positive whole school approach for mental health and wellbeing
  • Resilience: take-away practical strategies and resources to create a robust community, equipped to overcome adversity and thrive in uncertain times.
