Accredited Training for School Staff:
Become Mindful and Wellbeing Practitioners

Research is showing the benefits of young people being more mindful and having the tools and techniques to support their own mental health and wellbeing. Mindful and wellbeing strategies can help to reduce anxiety, improve social skills, increase awareness and attention and also give young people an understanding of their own thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
