Mental health education website for primary school teachers launches

A new website will help primary school teachers to support the mental health needs of their pupils.

Launched by the Duchess of Cambridge as part of the ‘Heads Together’ mental health campaign, the ‘Mentally Healthy Schools’ website will provide teachers with advice, lesson and assembly plans, and descriptions of a range of mental health needs.

The content on the site has been based on the latest available research, with guidance from the Centre for Mental Health, and advice and support from the National Association of Head Teachers.

The website is being piloted throughout 2018, with 50 schools across England helping to review and refine the content.

Users to the site can register for a personal account which allows them to share resources via email, Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn.

You can access the website free here.
