Supporting staff

All people working with young people should have an understanding of resilience and emotional health. It is also important for staff to know what additional resources they can access to help support a young person if they engage in a conversation about emotional difficulties with them.

Supporting the workforce’s emotional health is also very important. If the workforce are sad, stressed and overwhelmed they will not be able to support the needs of others if their needs are not being met.

The following resources have been selected to ensure that staff can access good training opportunities to support young people and that they are looked after emotionally and professionally within the Whole School Approach process.
