Resources for education settings

As the new school term begins, and children and teachers into their new groove for the year, we wanted to highlight some useful resources for the year ahead from CORC and teams across Anna Freud.

Engaging students with wellbeing findings guide
This guide, co-developed by CORC, the Evidence Based Practice Unit and Mercers, is provided with the intention of helping education staff to engage students with research findings about mental health and wellbeing.
For those planning to undertake our Wellbeing Measurement for Schools surveys, this will be useful to save, demonstrating how schools can work with students to improve their mental health. It provides top tips/direction in how to achieve this through engagement, including the following sections:

  • Why student engagement matters
  • Benefits
  • Practice examples
  • How to facilitate this

Mental Health and wellbeing calendar: Autumn term 2023

Being aware of upcoming mental health awareness days, and points where anxiety and stress may increase, can help you plan your wellbeing activity for the term.

This calendar covers awareness days and themes for this term, including:

  • the return to school and transitions
  • Black History Month
  • World Mental Health Day
  • International Stress Awareness Week
  • Anti-Bullying Week
