SCHOOLS

“It’s easier to build strong children than to repair broken adults.” F. Douglas

 

Overview

Since 2017 BeWell-DoWell have been working with schools and organisations in prioritising mental fitness through the delivery of tailored education and training. We have also worked with the School Completion Programme (funded by TUSLA). Our experience has shown us the value of common language and knowledge in the area of mental health. A whole school approach has huge benefits in this regard.

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”.
