Four Great TQI Accredited PDs now on offer:
According to the international lead health authority, The World Health Organization (WHO), there is ample evidence that school-based programmes can influence positive mental health and reduce risk factors and emotional and behavioural problems. WHO concluded that the outcomes for school based programmes included academic improvement, increased problem-solving skills and social competence as well as reductions in internalising and externalising problems such as depressive symptoms, anxiety, bullying, substance use and aggressive and delinquent behaviour (World Health Organization: Prevention of mental disorders: effective interventions and policy options, 2004)

“Anxiety & Depression” this PD was developed at the request of teachers to examine these 2 mental health disorders in more detail. We will look at 5 anxiety disorders and 4 depressive disorders, treatment and classroom strategies will also be discussed.
Teachers who have participated in both TQI Accredited PDs, The 3 Rs (Risk, Resilience and Recovery) and Anxiety & Depression now have a good knowledge of mental health issues that may affect their student but what about teachers own mental health?
The rationale for the new Teacher Wellbeing PD has its roots in the World Health Organisation’s health promoting school framework and is backed up by Sue Roffey in her article “Pupil Wellbeing- Teacher Wellbeing Two sides of the same coin”. Sue argues that promoting teachers’ wellbeing “is a valid and appropriate activity for the profession”.
