Mental health in schools: leadership and wellbeing in secondary settings

Part of a series of free webinars on mental health leadership in educational settings

Available to watch on demand

This free webinar took place on Tuesday 25 April 2023 and explored the range of mental health and wellbeing challenges presented in secondary school settings and how students, and staff, can be supported with these.

Led by Heather Daulphin, an education consultant and deputy safeguarding lead, our speaker explored issues surrounding emotional mental health – including anxieties linked to the transition from primary to secondary settings, peer pressure, identity, climate change and handling high expectations from family members, and shared links to valuable resources for implementing a whole-school approach.

Who is this webinar for?

This webinar is suitable for senior leaders with responsibility for mental and emotional health – or aspiring leaders who want to gain more knowledge and experience in this work. Safeguarding officers, designated safeguarding leads and senior mental health leads will also find this event helpful.

This event is part of a webinar series. As well as this session, we hosted an earlier webinar that’ll introduce you to the topic of mental health leadership in educational settings. Learn more about the series.

Interested in exploring school mental health and wellbeing further?

The Digital Academy’s Senior mental health lead training will help you develop a personalised plan that will allow you to influence, promote and embed a whole school or college approach to positive mental health and wellbeing.

Hosted online, you’ll learn at your own pace through a combination of interactive learning elements, case studies and live sessions. And, if you work in an eligible state-funded school or college in England, you can receive funding for this course from the Department for Education – meaning your costs will be covered.
