Mental Health & Wellbeing Training Ltd is a company committed to enabling school communities to be knowledgeable about mental health, confident in safely managing a mental health crisis, and experts in growing mental health resilience. We aim to do this by providing evidence-based, government recommended mental health training, delivered by experienced mental health consultants.
Through our staff, student, and parent/carer/guardian training courses, we aim to help you develop flourishing communities with strong minds and big hearts.
The training is tiered as follows:
A health promotion
Embed an organisational culture of positive mental health, and actively promote the behaviours which have been scientifically proven to improve behaviour and emotional regulation, increase performance and emotional intelligence, reduce unhelpful health behaviours and encourage creative and adventurous learning.
A health education
Grow a school community that is knowledgeable about mental health, where difficulties are identified early, appropriate support is accessed and the staff member or pupil experiences minimal disruption to functioning and learning.
An early health intervention message
Respond safely to mental health emergencies, delivering care within the school environment which meets the UK government and UK clinical guidelines.
