About the course

This day-long conference is for teachers in leadership roles, senior mental health leads and any school staff interested in creating more 'mental health-friendly' schools.

A series of talks and workshops will cover topics such as managing challenging behaviour, teacher wellbeing, interpreting government policy and working effectively with parents. 

Lunch will be provided and delegates can choose to attend three workshops from the day's schedule. 

The conference is a collaboration between St Mary’s University and Maudsley Learning and was set up in response to a 2017 Green Paper published by Public Health England & Ofsted.

 

Course programme

This conference blends practical workshop sessions with discussions around best practice and strategies for improving the lives of young people with mental health issues, their families and teachers.

Keynote speeches book-ending the day will address government, Public Health England and Ofsted guidance on improving young people’s mental health at school.
