In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, SHINE has put together some simple wellbeing advice sheets for young people, parents/carers and school staff in order to support schools. These sheets could be circulated within the digital school community, posted to a digital wellbeing hub or e-mailed out. Each advice sheet also includes relevant website links, which we hope you will find useful. Any feedback or comments can be e-mailed to Dawn.Haughton@glasgow.ac.uk.
SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health) E-Module for Teachers
In a recent survey, teachers told SAMH that they didn’t feel that they had received sufficient training in mental health to allow them to carry out their role.
Which is why we’ve created ‘We all have mental health: an introduction for teachers’, to provide teachers with an introduction to mental health; equip them with the skills and knowledge to recognise and respond to a pupil who is experiencing a mental health problem; and lead a conversation about positive mental health.
