Teaching about mental wellbeing
Practical materials for primary and secondary schools to use to train staff about teaching mental wellbeing.
This training module supports the physical health and mental wellbeing section of the statutory relationships, sex and health education curriculum. This is the first of a series of 14 modules to support schools to implement the new curriculum.
We have developed this mental wellbeing teacher training module to help subject leads and teachers understand what they should teach, as well as improving their confidence in delivering mental wellbeing as part of the new curriculum.
The new curriculum becomes statutory in September 2020 but the content in this module may be useful for teachers who are currently working with pupils, either face-to-face or remotely, to support them to maintain good mental health and address issues before they escalate.
How to use this training module
We have designed this module to help subject leads to train teachers who will be teaching mental wellbeing.
The module contains key knowledge and facts to help teachers understand what they must teach.
These slides should be adapted to suit individual school context. This can include adding your own videos and resources to make your teaching training sessions more visual and interactive.
