YoungMinds’ 360° Schools training focuses on the whole school environment and helps schools find opportunities for every young person to cope with change and adversity, enjoy learning and look after their mental health and wellbeing.
How do you improve outcomes for all young people in your school? This is where YoungMinds’ holistic, asset-focused approach really helps.
Thinking about the positive relationships that are created between staff and students is a great way to start; as well as the school’s ethos and culture and how much staff share this vision.
If wellbeing is a priority for the whole community, then finding ways to involve senior leaders and governors is vital too.
Schools should include a clear commitment to staff wellbeing. YoungMinds knows how incredibly busy school staff are and how they strive to do the best for their students, so helping schools to value and support their staff is a crucial part of its offer.
Another area it focuses on is how a school identifies the most vulnerable young people and what is in place to meet their needs. These needs may include mental health issues, or Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).
YoungMinds explores which parts of the school system need to adapt to give these young people a chance to reach their potential, and who needs to be involved in this support.
Is there a learning support assistant who has really connected with a student who may be struggling? Or is your librarian best placed to advocate on behalf of a young person?
Another area to explore is the role of parents and carers in the school and how YoungMinds can empower them to build partnerships with schools to support their children.
