The Whole School Approach has been delivered in schools across England and Wales since 2018, with the aim to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing across the entire school community. This year, Lancashire Mind have created short videos and resource booklets of the activities that would usually be delivered by us in your school.
Details of the each session and who they are to be sent to/watched by can be found in your school's action planning document.
More resources, including some created during Coronavirus lockdown can be found here
