A Focus on Mental Health

This is an online course which enables you to explore and consider mental health issues, especially within school settings. The course does not offer professional advice, and we make it clear that if serious concerns are raised, then medical or professional advice should be sought immediately.

However, the course offers teachers the following:

  • → An explanation of common mental health conditions.
  • → An exploration of the stigmas attached to mental health conditions.
  • → Acknowledging the issues
  • → A consideration of gender differences with dealing with mental health issues
  • → Opportunities to discuss mental health with students, colleagues, and school leaders.

This course is inspired by the issues and contributions during the #UKEdChat session. You can freely view the summary and archive of this session by clicking here. Reference to the UKEdChat session is also made within this course.

Upon completion of this course, participants will receive a PDF summary of the course completed, along with a ‘certification of completion’ PDF, for CPD evidence. Please print these off for your own records.
