Improving Pupil Well-being and Resilience: the case for building parental capacity

Cognita Venue 2

12:20 pm - 1:00 pm

Wellbeing Summit

Schools and teachers are continually expected to spot, manage, and help pupils and families successfully navigate the vast array of mental health problems that young people face. This talk offers attendees: (a) A useful ‘take-home’ update on the national picture as it relates to children and young people’s mental health; (b) An explanation as to why schools should be focusing on building parental capacity in their communities to help improve pupil mental health and well-being; (c) The opportunity to consider an array of evidence-based, practical and cost-effective strategies for improving pupils’ outcomes.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
