As part of the Future in Mind action plan, the Alliance for Learning’s Mental Health expert, Lisa Wisher, delivered sessions to staff throughout the day on Monday 22nd May, focusing specifically on supporting a young person’s mental health. Aimed at supporting and developing the emotional and social wellbeing of the whole school community, the sessions developed participants’ knowledge and understanding of some of the main social, emotional and mental health difficulties students present with. This has further enabled staff to identify key causal factors for troubling behavior, and empowered them to make changes that will increase their effectiveness in supporting our young people. Many thanks to the Alliance for Learning and Lisa Wisher for their excellent professionalism, knowledge, support and provision.
