YMiS launches promotional video
YoungMinds in Schools has launched a new promotional video to explain more about the vital work the project is doing working with children in schools across England.
YoungMinds in Schools is funded by the Department for Education and aims to improve outcomes for children and young people with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties by providing online learning resources for educational professionals, along with a range of training courses related to mental health and wellbeing in schools.
During 2012, the project is piloting a programme of training and consultancy to four clusters of schools in England (Tottenham in north London, Southwark in south London, Burgess Hill in Sussex and Weston-super-Mare in Somerset). Each school cluster consists of one secondary and three primary schools.
YoungMinds in Schools works on whole school emotional wellbeing, therapeutic storywriting and mindfulness as well as working with parents.
Juliet Coley, Deputy Headteacher at Gladesmore Community School said: "YoungMinds programme has been absolutely brilliant. Most important was the training offered to the staff. I learnt things I didn’t know in terms of student behaviour and emotional wellbeing and have been able to cascade this to other staff. The training for me has been invaluable."
The video is available here:-
Longer videos with more information on whole school emotional wellbeing, therapeutic storywriting, mindfulness and work with parents are available here.
