School Well-being: promoting mental health in schools: inclusive practice
Written by Jagdish Kaur Barn, an educational psychologist at FocusPsychology, the article discusses how schools might evaluate their current practice regarding mental health, and how they could begin to improve practices in order to promote positive mental health for their pupils. This article originally appeared in 'Special' in July 2016.
The article looks into questions to ask to support self-evaluation, and takes a solution-orientated approach. It considers the importance of staff well-being in order to promote pupil well-being, and how having staff on board is crucial to developing mentally healthy schools.
It then explores a 'relational approach' and how teachers can employ this effectively, including some suggestions for PSHE and managing exam stress. There is a useful glossary of terms and a description of one of the key concepts in mental health, resilience.
