Well-Being Sessions


Tower Hamlets Council are rolling out a wellbeing programme for schools which will include training and resources on mental wellbeing. The programme will aim to support mental wellbeing and resilience and aid mental health recovery for school staff, pupils, parents and carers, in light of the impact of COVID-19 and lockdown. The Local Authority have pulled together local experts to deliver training to school staff and Further Education (FE) providers, preventing as many people as possible from developing mental health difficulties and ensuring those with pre-existing or emerging difficulties access the right support. The training will take place online and will cover a whole school approach, wellbeing and resilience. Further training will cover specific concerns such as bereavement, anxiety and trauma. Future training dates will be shared next term. To book a place on any of the above sessions, please email sultanax.begum@towerhamlets.gov.uk with the name of the session(s) you would like to attend, your name, role, organisation and contact details. Please note that places are limited and will be booked on a first come first served basis.

The sessions are free to attend and will be held online.
