Training

We've put together a list of websites that can provide you with some more information about training and where you can get it.

 

*Some information gathered from www.nhs.uk and the services listed.

Schools & Colleges 

With limited resource and lots of different courses available it can be difficult to know which training to take up. As a starting point it is ideal for all staff to have a good basic understanding of mental health – understanding their own wellbeing as well as being able to spot the signs of problems in their students. Once all staff have this level of knowledge and understanding there are opportunities to expand this through attending more in depth courses.

Certain members of staff will particularly benefit from more training, such as those working in pastoral roles, although it is important that by training a few individuals that there isn’t too much of a reliance on them.

There is a range of training avaialble, some of which is funded. Training includes:

MindEd (Free) - Online training for families and those working with children and young people. There are e-learning opporutnities across a range of mental health topics. https://www.minded.org.uk/

Resources

Guidance for creating and promoting positive mental health and wellbeing in schools can be found on this page of our website; it includes a policy document created by Bottisham Village College and the CAMH Learning and Development team, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust, which is intended as a template for other secondary schools.

The majority of the following resources have been taken from this policy's supporting information document.


Anxiety, panic attacks and phobias

Anxiety can take many forms in children and young people, and it is something that each of us experiences at low levels as part of normal life. When thoughts of anxiety, fear or panic are repeatedly present over several weeks or months and/or they are beginning to impact on a young person’s ability to access or enjoy day-to-day life, intervention is needed.

    Depression

    Ups and downs are a normal part of life for all of us, but for someone who is suffering from depression these ups and downs may be more extreme. Feelings of failure, hopelessness, numbness or sadness may invade their day-to-day life over an extended period of weeks or months, and have a significant impact on their behaviour and ability and motivation to engage in day-to-day activities.

    Eating problems

    Food, weight and shape may be used as a way of coping with, or communicating about, difficult thoughts, feelings and behaviours that a young person experiences day to day. Some young people develop eating disorders such as anorexia (where food intake is restricted), binge eating disorder and bulimia nervosa (a cycle of bingeing and purging). Other young people, particularly those of primary or preschool age, may develop problematic behaviours around food including refusing to eat in certain situations or with certain people. This can be a way of communicating messages the child does not have the words to convey.

    Obsessions and compulsions

    Obsessions describe intrusive thoughts or feelings that enter our minds which are disturbing or upsetting; compulsions are the behaviours we carry out in order to manage those thoughts or feelings. For example, a young person may be constantly worried that their house will burn down if they don’t turn off all switches before leaving the house. They may respond to these thoughts by repeatedly checking switches, perhaps returning home several times to do so. Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) can take many forms – it is not just about cleaning and checking.

    Self-Harm

    Self-harm describes any behaviour where a young person causes harm to themselves in order to cope with thoughts, feelings or experiences they are not able to manage in any other way. It most frequently takes the form of cutting, burning or non-lethal overdoses in adolescents, while younger children and young people with special needs are more likely to pick or scratch at wounds, pull out their hair or bang or bruise themselves.

    Suicidal feelings

    Young people may experience complicated thoughts and feelings about wanting to end their own lives. Some young people never act on these feelings though they may openly discuss and explore them, while other young people die suddenly from suicide apparently out of the blue.

    Staff Wellbeing Policy

    Information and guidance on how to promote positive mental health and wellbeing for staff in schools can be found here.

    Creating Mentally Healthy Schools

    A Whole-School Approach to Mental Health

    A whole-school approach means making child, staff and parent/carer mental health and wellbeing ‘everybody’s business’. It involves all parts of the school working together and being committed. It needs partnership working between governors, senior leaders, teachers and all school staff as well as parents, carers and the wider community (Mentally Healthy Schools). For more information visit https://www.mentallyhealthyschools.org.uk/whole-school-approach/.

    There are lots of helpful documents and frameworks to develop a whole-school approach to mental health, these include:

    National Children’s Bureau: A whole school framework for emotional well being and mental health: a self-assessment and improvement tool for school leaders. Outlines a four-stage approach, including first identifying what is already in place in the school.

    Public Health England: ‘Promoting children and young people’s emotional health and wellbeing: a whole school and college approach’. 

    DfE/NatCen Social Research/National Children’s Bureau: ‘Supporting mental health in schools and colleges’

    School Policy  - Promoting positive mental health and wellbeing  

    The policy document found here is the outcome of a collaboration between Bottisham Village College and the CAMH Learning and Development team, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust. It is intended as a template for other secondary schools and will therefore be made available across the county. However, it is not meant to be adopted without due process and careful and thorough consideration of the individual school’s needs in relation to the emotional wellbeing and mental health of its pupils and staff. 

    Guidance as to how the policy could be customised can be found here.

    Other useful resources for creating mentally healthy schools

    Heads Together and the Anna Freud Centre have launched the Mentally Healthy Schools website which brings together quality-assured information, advice and resources to help primary schools understand and promote children’s mental health and wellbeing. Their aim is to increase staff awareness, knowledge and confidence to help you support your pupils. Resources include lessons plans, assemblies, films and general information on a range of topics and issues.

    Schools in Mind Network:

    The Schools in Mind Network is run by the Anna Freud Centre, by joining the network your school will be able to access a range of free resources. This includes films to use in lessons, assembly plans as well as a range of films featuring experts talking about different mental health issues and giving advice aimed at teaching staff. Joining the network also enables you to keep up to date with the 'You're never to Young to Talk About Mental Health' campaign.

    PSHE

    The following short films are designed to show how teaching Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) in schools and colleges can support children and young people’s personal development. They illustrate how knowledge, skills and attitudes explored during this learning can potentially have a positive impact on children and young people’s mental and emotional wellbeing.

    The films involve pupils from a primary and secondary school in Cambridgeshire where the ethos and culture supports and promotes children’s and young people health and wellbeing. In these schools, teaching and learning in PSHE are prioritised, and as well as being taught explicitly via designated periods of time, form an integral part of the schools’ practice.

    The lessons represent a snapshot of activities that would form part of a longer term personal development programme. They showcase examples of PSHE teaching and learning methodologies that could be delivered during a PSHE lesson or tutor time and are designed to serve as an illustrative guide rather than examples of standalone lessons. We would advise reading the accompanying guidance for each film before teaching lessons based on the content of the film.

    The lessons will also support the requirements for the forthcoming statutory status for Relationships Education, and possible statutory status for PSHE.

    We would really appreciate it if you could take a few moments to answer the 4 questions via this link once you have accessed the films:

    Healthy Relationships - Accompanying Notes  (Secondary School)

    Body Image - Accompanying Notes  (Secondary School)

    Anti-bullying - Accompanying Notes (Secondary School)

    Conflict Resolution - Accompanying Notes  (Primary School)

      My Emotions - Accompanying Notes   (Primary School)

    Acknowledgements: We would like to thank the two Cambridgeshire schools for hosting this project, and the pupils for their participation. We would also like to thank Edd Mitchell from Burwell House in Cambridgeshire for creating the films.  

    The Cambridgeshire PSHE Service provides support, guidance and training on the themed areas and approaches explored in these films. Email pshe@cambridgeshire.gov.uk for information about teaching materials and resources designed to support schools in delivering these aspects of the PSHE curriculum.  

    The BBC has a range of short videos about young people and the things they worry about including bullying,anxiety and OCD. They are suitable for Key stage 2 and 3 and can be found HERE

    The Mix now has information and support all about healthy relationships.

    Pupil Voice

    The Pupil Voice Toolkit was developed by PSHE as a free resource to support schools and colleges to work with our children and young people to explore ways of promoting their mental and emotional wellbeing. The process involves children in identifying self-help opportunities and ways in which school and community provision could further enhance their mental and emotional wellbeing. It will help school leaders make use of school level data to identify the mental wellbeing needs of children and to determine how best to address these. The resources in the toolkit are based on mental and emotional wellbeing examples, however, the tools could be adapted to apply to other topic areas also.
