It is not designed as clinical support – so if you are concerned about your wellbeing, it is important to reach out for professional support.
The example activities are organised into four focus areas:
Reflecting – How well are you doing, and how can you do even better?
Talking – How you talk about mental health can make a big difference.
Sharing – Working with your colleagues, sharing and supporting each other.
Building – Create a mentally healthy school where the wellbeing of everyone is important.
Work through the example activities in first area (Reflecting) by yourself. You’ll need to work with a colleague as you work through the activities in the second and third areas (Talking and Sharing), and the fourth area (Building) is best tackled in a coordinated way by the whole school staff.
To create whole school change, it will be important to engage all school staff, and for this reason the most useful approach would be to fold tailored staff wellbeing activities into your school’s mental health promotion, prevention and early intervention efforts.
But you can start right now by looking through the activities in the first two areas, and perhaps you can try activity 1 –Travelling well.
