The day will include a selection of good practice workshops, a resource share zone, a networking lunch and the Centres of Excellence awards ceremony - not to mention the special guest speaker, Martin Lewis, OBE - Money saving Expert (subject to filming)
This is a fantastic opportunity for you to network with lots of likeminded teachers who are at various stages of the programme.

Rethink Schizophrenia is coming soon!
Rethink Mental Illness campaign, Rethink Schizophrenia, will launch on 18 September, to improve people’s understanding of what schizophrenia is and what it means to live with the illness.
Rethink Schizophrenia is a refreshed version of Schizophrenia Awareness Week, which they run annually since 2013. When it comes to schizophrenia, understanding is nowhere near what it should be. This year they’re aiming to reach people with little or no knowledge of schizophrenia to raise more and better awareness.

Stonewall launches School Report 2017
Ten years ago, Stonewall launched the first School Report, a ground-breaking study into the experiences of 1,100 lesbian, gay and bi pupils in Britain’s schools. Published four years after the repeal of Section 28, it revealed a startling picture: two in three lesbian, gay and bi pupils had been bullied at school because of their sexual orientation, and just one in four schools said this bullying was wrong.

Over 100,000 people have pledged to end mental health stigma with Time to Change. Will you join them?
