Mental Health & Well-being training for Early Years Practitioners - 'Mindfulness'
This workshop will focus on how you can start to develop lifelong skills that support your own mental health and well-being and how we can support the lifelong skills of Mindfulness in children that will help to their positive mental health for now and in the future.
According to the UK government document Mental Health and Behaviour in Schools, "One in ten children and young people aged 5 to 16 has a clinically diagnosed mental health disorder and around one in seven has less severe problems." One of the key points made in the document is that in order to help children succeed, schools have a role to play in supporting them to be resilient and mentally healthy. The New Ofsted framework also puts an emphasis on "developing pupil's confidence, resilience and knowledge so that they can keep themselves mentally healthy."
All Early Years Practitioners
(Teachers, Support Staff, Nursery Nurses …)
