This session explores what resilience and risk means in practice within a whole-systems or whole-community approach to children's mental health and wellbeing. Attendees will come away with a better understanding of the school's role in promoting the resilience of its community. The session will inspire attendees to consider their school's mental health strategy and what universal and targeted supports they can (and may already have) put in place for their community to improve pupil outcomes, as well as the importance of monitoring the impact of these through data.
This session comprises a short presentation and a Q&A session.
