Bitesize CPD: Teaching about mental health safely and sensitively

This video is designed to be used as part of a staff /team meeting as a form of mini CPD. It contains pause points when you can break for discussion so you can pick up and run with the ideas and think how to make them work for you.



In this session, I explore how we can safely and sensitively tackle tricky topics like self-harm or eating disorder as part of PSHE or our wider curriculum. I hope this will boost your confidence in teaching these topics.


For a deeper dive into this topic, check out the PSHE Association's guidance on preparing to teach about mental health (this was commissioned by the Department for Education and was a piece of work I originally led).
