Education Pandemic Wellbeing Suite

Helping educational settings to meet the mental health needs of their pupils and their staff

Suitable for Early Years, Primary, Secondary and Further Education

Covid-19 has had a massive impact on the way we educate our pupils, their families, our staff and our own stresses.

There is very little research available on the impact of children, however research on adults from affected regions in China show around 1 in 2 people have been mentally affected, with around 10% of those returning to work experiencing symptoms of PTSD!

This has massive implications for education settings, who have statutory duties to ensure the mental wellbeing of their staff, in addition to meeting the needs of their pupils.

One low price, four pandemic specific mental health courses (plus one extra in case it is useful)

To help you meet your responsibilities we are proud to present the Pandemic Wellbeing Suite, four courses for one fixed price depending on the size of your organisation.
