Good mental health is much more than the absence of mental illness – it also means having self-belief and the resilience to cope with stress and change. In order to teach such skills, teachers and other education professionals must equip themselves and their workplaces with the procedures, understanding and confidence required to monitor mental health, share concepts effectively, identify warning signs and act appropriately if issues arise.
Written by an author team combining clinical and teaching expertise, Mental Health and Wellbeing in Primary Education puts all the information you need at your fingertips with detailed guidance on creating a culture of wellbeing, overviews of how a wide variety of common mental health problems including anxiety, anger and ADHD are typically diagnosed and managed, warning signs to look out for, and a range of ready-made forms, exercises and lesson plans.
