Supporting wellbeing in education

Education

Helping to nurture mentally healthy schools so young people can thrive.

According to NHS Digital, one in six children aged between six and 16 in England are likely to have a mental health problem. Whether it’s brought on by studies, peer pressure, problems at home or something else entirely, teachers and educational setting staff are ideally placed to spot early warning signs of vulnerabilities and poor mental health – it’s critical they’re given the tools to address wellbeing needs.

With the right resources, schools, colleges and universities can do more to champion mental health in young people and identify those who are struggling and might benefit from personalised support.

WELLBEING AND SUPPORT

Mental health full circle: helping teachers to help students

Good staff wellbeing is a necessity if we’re to improve mental health in educational settings – it doesn’t just come down to the students. 

Teachers and other educational staff have a big responsibility to ensure the good mental health of their pupils, along with juggling other demands of the role, so it’s important they’re given the right emotional support too. Mental health and wellbeing initiatives in schools should be extended to staff and every measure in place to ensure these leaders are the epitome of the school’s culture and values. They lead by example, after all, so ensuring they feel supported is crucial.

WELLBEING SUPPORT

Promoting wellbeing in education

It’s crucial educational settings get hands on in supporting students’ mental health and wellbeing. But with teaching provision often stretched and time a luxury that isn’t guaranteed, it can be difficult for teachers and staff to open up conversations and provide that much-needed support in the classroom. Govox helps teachers put a discreet lens on students’ mental health and extract information from them in a non-intrusive way that leaves them more likely to open up. In a class of 30, five young people are likely to be living with poor mental health – we help schools, colleges and universities spot who.
