We are delighted to announce that in September we will be launching our new Be Well Programme to support students and staff with well-being and mental health. As a trust, we are investing £600,000 over the next four years, in partnership with Humber NHS and Hull and East Yorkshire Mind, to deliver an integrated package of information, training and support.
The Be Well Programme will include:
Jonny Uttley, CEO of The Education Alliance Trust said:
“The mental health of young people has never been higher on the national agenda. There has been a great deal of discussion around the different pressures young people face and how we can best support them. According to Mind, one in ten young people nationally has a diagnosable mental health problem. As a group of schools we have thought about how we can provide the best possible information, training and support and we are delighted to form this partnership and draw on the expertise of Humber NHS and Mind. Through our partnership with Pagabo, a local company, we have generated funding outside our schools’ normal funding to enable us to set up this programme. We look forward to sharing more information and launching this unique programme in September and hope it will have a really positive impact on the lives of our young people, their families and our staff.”
