Overview

BeWell-DoWell have developed a preventative and accessible model   for prioritising well-being and mental fitness in the whole school community. The talks provide schools with practical and evidenced-based strategies and a comprehensive list of resources for further support.

All of our talks reflect best practice as in line with the Department of Education and Skills Well-being Policy Statement and Framework for Practice 2018-2023: “Current research indicates that what is most beneficial in the promotion of well-being in education is to adopt a multi-component, whole school and evidence-informed approach”.

BeWell-DoWell outline how small changes can have a significant impact in building a strong social and emotional foundation for our students and the adults in their lives.
