Emotional Wellbeing In Education - Enhancing Emotional Wellbeing
|Organisation||Innovating Minds CIC|
Saint Nicholas Place, 81 The Green
We believe in providing support for young people, caregivers and teachers when they want it, not when they need it. We support schools to create a whole school school approach to mental health to foster emotional wellbeing and resiliency so young people are nurtured to achieve their aspirations.
We aim to ensure that young people’s emotional wellbeing is supported throughout their education, and therefore we believe in working from an early intervention model by providing specialist, accessible psychological support- so we will work within the educational setting. We up-skill staff working within the school to ensure everyone is skilled to support their staff and students mental health. By implementing our approach the school will create a sustainable impact and develop a therapeutic culture across the school.
