What can we do to Address the Decline in Pupil Mental Health and Well-being?

Presented by

Jonathan Swift

About this talk

Education Today’s popular webinar series is now in full swing for 2019, and up next for discussion is a topic currently making the news – pupil mental health. In the webinar “What can we do to address the decline in pupil mental health and wellbeing”, The Outward Bound Trust will be examining the multiple aspects of this worrying and complex issue. We expect young people to successfully function in our rapidly changing society, with increased pressure on them to perform academically at an earlier age and at a faster rate. Are our expectations realistic? For this generation, leisure time can often mean isolating screen time, resulting in the erosion of positive face-to-face social interactions and engagement in outdoor, natural and nurturing environments which are proven to boost mental wellbeing. Two prominent teachers explore with us the state of their pupils’ mental health, and review what current research is telling us about this issue within the wider context of UK education, sharing the interventions they have successfully adopted inside and outside the classroom to help encourage mental health and wellbeing.
