Master in Mental Health

Master

A day long course to increase a teacher’s understanding of mental health and mental illness. We also train teachers to deliver a 6-lesson curriculum.  Staff become equipped to support pupils and teach awareness of what constitutes mental illness in all its forms thus reducing the stigma surrounding it. As a result, this allows greater empathy on behalf of staff towards pupils and pupils towards their peers recognising symptoms in themselves and others. It also give teachers the knowledge to support and teach pupils to develop and look after their mental health. This is especially important in an age where there is so much pressure on young people from multiple sources such as social media.
