Hexham and Newcastle Diocesan Department for Education


Mental Health and Wellbeing

The CES has also produced a list of resources for Catholic schools on the topic of Mental Health and Wellbeing which can be found here: https://www.catholiceducation.org.uk/schools/mental-health-resources. If you are aware of any other Catholic resources that would be helpful to add to this page please let us know.

The Department for Education has asked us to circulate the following information on their teaching training module on mental health and wellbeing.

The RSHE Mental Wellbeing teacher training module has been published as part of the Department for Education’s wider package of support offered to support pupil and teacher mental health and wellbeing.

The module can be accessed here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/teaching-about-mental-wellbeing.

The landing page for the module links to a series of short filmed recordings of lessons and resources produced by the Tenax Schools Trust. It also links to additional support for teachers during the Coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic.
