Creative and flexible wellbeing solutions for your school or college
Utilising evidence-based and goal-directed strategies designed for use with children and young people, and with many years of experience supporting young people in educational settings, Eastbourne Wellbeing offers a professional, friendly and adaptable partnership with local schools and colleges.
Please get in touch if you would like to discuss how this effective and affordable service can enhance student wellbeing in your setting.
One-to-one weekly appointments held over a 12 week period:
Evidence-based cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) -based interventions for children and young people who are disaffected with school/college, struggling with anxiety, negative thinking patterns, poor self-image, worry, depression / low mood, low self-esteem and confidence, phobias, anger/impulse control, and who are generally out of sorts.
Small-group work, weekly, for 6 weeks:
Practical, effective strategies which promote emotional wellbeing, including targeted interventions for coping with the build-up to exams or for specific groups of young people identified as having similar needs.
Peer mentoring wellbeing programmes:
Involvement in peer mentoring schemes has been linked to improvements in academic performance, attendance and perceived connectedness to school (Angus & Hughes, 2017). Eastbourne Wellbeing can help your school to set up and run a programme which fits with your school community.
Mental Health First Aid training:
MHFA can be arranged for school staff. MHFA training helps staff to feel more confident in supporting students with their wellbeing and helps to promote a confident, positive message about mental health throughout the whole learning environment.
Guidance and support around how to move forward with meeting the emotional wellbeing and mental health needs of the students in your school / college.
