Mental resilience is not something that people either have or do not – resilience is learnable and teachable and as we learn we increase the range of strategies available to us when things get difficult.
Sefton Council is working with the charity YoungMinds to improve mental resilience in schools. 28 schools have joined a training session to support schools to improve the mental resilience of pupils, staff and parents.
YoungMinds works with hundreds of schools and thousands of teachers every year to develop their understanding and responses. Further sessions are planned as part of wider work to support schools with improving mental health.
30 Days of Sefton in Mind is a local campaign to highlight local activity taking place and the variety of services available aimed at improving mental health in Sefton. #SeftonInMind
