Overview

Working alongside fellow teachers, you will gain an understanding of the evidence of effective whole school mental health and be able to apply this to your role as a school leader. You will learn how to recognise issues such as low self-esteem, anxiety and depression, so that you can take early steps to improve the mental health of the children in your care, developing sophisticated and original interventions to build their resilience and nurture appropriate coping mechanisms. You will provide an inclusive and enabling environment where every student's mental health can be supported and strengthened.

The Leadership of School Mental Health and Wellbeing from Leeds Beckett University  will adopt a multidisciplinary, whole systems approach to the improvement of mental health and wellbeing. You will draw on expertise from child therapy, education psychology, mental health nursing, school leadership and teaching, and you will develop the knowledge, confidence, independence and leadership skills to be able to provide effective mental health support for all your students.

Career

Aimed at designated senior leaders for mental health, this course will allow you to gain key leadership and management skills and increased mental health understanding to provide the best possible support for children and to set you apart in ever-changing educational settings. Developing best practices in mental health could help you raise your profile and secure a promotion to a senior leadership position within your school or at a multi-academy trust.
