Make the Level 1 Award in Mental Health Awareness part of your curriculum
Even before Covid, there has been significant changes to Ofsted’s approach in supporting emotional well-being and mental health in education. It’s no longer news to anybody especially during these challenging times that we have experienced a rise in mental ill-health & disorder. We have to educate, upskill and resource students, teachers and senior staff alike.
The effects on Mental Health in Education:
Since Mental health is so wide ranging it can so easily be misunderstood. It’s because it’s so misunderstood that people are often reluctant to share what’s really going which can leave them feeling alone and isolated.
It’s important to recognise that when you don’t have a way of properly understanding something it’s very difficult to talk about it confidently or with any real clarity. Especially, if you’re talking about mental health in education.
So, when everyone in the community is given the opportunity to become educated, upskilled and resourced it supports in feeling more seen, more heard and more valued.
What we do...
We raise awareness and help create a common understanding that will support everyone in having a more informed conversation about mental health in a clear and empathic way.
The Level 1 Award in Mental Health Awareness offers the opportunity for everyone in the community to become qualified to the same level.
When we are all on the same level we can have conversations about mental health creating more open and supportive working, personal and social environments.
