Improvements in children’s wellbeing? Are you seeing it? A recent press release from the DfE https://www.gov.uk/government/news/improvements-seen-in-children-and-young-peoples-wellbeing suggests that children are benefitting from support for their mental health and wellbeing and improvements are being made. Yet, this BBC report implies we are not doing enough. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-60304665
Not just post Covid! Take a look at The Conversation. They were highlighting issues around mental health well before Covid hit. So, has Covid increased awareness or are we finally starting to sit up, take note and implement the support needed?
True Education Partnerships have a dedicated page on ‘How to support mental health in schools’
From the benefits to statistics, they have in-depth coverage and offer ideas and advice. It’s well worth a read.
