1. Understanding mental health & wellbeing

We introduce factors that contribute to positive mental health and wellbeing.

2. Nature and nurture

We explore how early experiences shape the way we perceive ourselves and relate to others, and how those experiences create the pathways in the brain that support our development. 

3. How can I help?

We consider what a child’s behaviour might be communicating about their underlying needs.

4. Mental health: everybody’s business

We reflect on the importance of positive mental health for everyone with a focus on the adults around a child.

What I really liked about the training was that it didn't just give you the theory, but provided lots of ways to put this theory into practice...I also found the discussion element — where other teachers gave their feedback – really helpful
