Mental health and well-being provision are increasingly high on school’s agendas, but there are many simple and effective solutions that are not yet being implemented on a large scale such as peer mentoring, advanced SEL provision and most importantly, a whole-school approach to wellbeing. These simple solutions can be implemented in as little as 10 minutes of intervention a day thanks to innovative programmes, and they have proven to have a positive impact not only on pupils’ mental health and well-being, but also on their academic achievement. And teachers and staff also benefit greatly as a consequence of these improvements. This session will offer a quick overview of the current mental health and well-being challenges that schools are encountering and the key reasons for these challenges. It will also cover a blueprint for the development of an impactful whole-school well-being programme that can help all children thrive.
