Improving Mental Health and Wellbeing in Schools Conference
NHS figures show that one in ten girls aged 16 or 17 were referred to specialist mental health services in England last year. As the number of young people in need of support continues to increase, teachers are well placed to spot the early signs of a mental health problems before they develop into complex long-term conditions.
In December 2017, the government published a green paper on “Transforming Children and Young People’s Mental Health Provision”. The consultation document proposes a four week waiting time for NHS services, mental health support teams in schools and lessons in mental wellbeing as part of the PSHE syllabus.
Join us for the Improving Mental Health and Wellbeing in Schools Conference where leading experts from both the health and education sectors will provide unique insights into a growing problem in our schools. Understand the common mental health complaints among pupils and how to spot them, how to build stronger links between the education sector and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services and how social media is affecting the wellbeing of young people.
