Teaching About Mental Health and Emotional Well-Being

10th of May, 9:30-12:30 p.m.

Teaching about mental health and emotional well-being promotes pupils’ well-being through the development of healthy coping strategies and an understanding of their own emotions as well as those of other people. It can also play a vital role in safeguarding pupils.


This half-day workshop will support you in developing the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to teach this crucial but challenging aspect of the PSHE education curriculum safely and effectively. You will also be able to access the guidance and lesson plans for the teaching programme developed by the PSHE association, with funding from the Department of Education. We will also look at the materials published by the Anna Freud Institute.

It is facilitated by Dr Bianca Finger-Berry, Educational Psychology and Specialist Support, and Rachel Welch, Charlie Waller Trust.

It is expected that staff will be implementing this teaching programme in their schools. A feedback tool for students, to consider the initial impact of the programme, is available.


Attending this workshop will enable you to:

  • Learn about a whole school approach to promoting mental and emotional wellbeing
  • Increase your confidence in teaching about mental health and emotional wellbeing
  • Develop skills and strategies for keeping vulnerable pupils safe
  • Explore a range of resources and activities you could use at school including DfE approved lesson plans


Senior Leaders, PSHE/SMSC Co-ordinators, PSHE/SMSC teaching staff, Form tutors and other staff who are teaching PSHE/SMSC.
