Pupil Mental Health: Effective Practice to Ensure Wellbeing
The mental health and wellbeing of students was a significant priority for schools before the Covid-19 pandemic. This agenda has now become an essential element of recovery work. The 2021/22 academic year will bring many challenges for the wellbeing of pupils as we continue our recovery from the pandemic and begin to deal with the aftermath of national lockdowns and social restrictions – schools are already reporting an increase in mental health and safeguarding referrals, interventions and support needs.
Join thousands of schools, offices and communities on Friday 8 Oct by taking part in #HelloYellow and raising vital funds to support our work. Dig out your neon socks, custard scarf and banana hat – let’s show young people they’re not alone with their mental health!

This is a hybrid course delivery of both fact to face at Apsley House and online. I was once asked: “How you can help with early trauma when by its very nature it is inaccessible to the client?” This is a great question and holds true for most trauma and in particular early trauma. I was also asked: “Is EMDR the only way to treat trauma and early trauma?”
