Future in Mind Sheffield

Future in Mind (2015) prioritised promoting resilience, prevention and early intervention. Local transformation plans were developed to recognise the importance of promoting good mental health and wellbeing in the population as a whole, not just focusing on mental illness and diagnosis. There is evidence that building resilience through to adulthood and supporting self-care reduces the burden of mental and physical ill health over the whole life course, reducing the cost of future interventions, improving economic growth and reducing health inequalities.

Schools are in a unique position to support children and young people to develop resilience and improve emotional wellbeing and mental health. Many schools are already developing whole school approaches to promoting resilience and improving emotional wellbeing, preventing mental health problems from arising and providing early support. Evidence shows that interventions taking a whole school approach to wellbeing have a positive impact in relation to both physical and mental health outcomes. In 2017-18 we are offering the training to post 16 providers and children’s workforce, as well as schools to capture children and young people who are not in mainstream education.  The training provision complements the roll out of the Healthy Minds Framework to embed a culture of emotional wellbeing across Sheffield schools over the next 2-3 years.

Locally we have committed to building capacity in schools to embed a culture that responds positively to the emotional wellbeing needs of students as part of our Future in Mind Transformation. This training will support staff by raising awareness and confidence to respond effectively to young people’s psychological distress and access useful resources.

There are six organisations providing training across the locality areas throughout 2017-18. This training will be delivered free of charge with up to 3 spaces allocated per school/college or organisation. Places are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment. The average cost of each training session is £65 per participant, please ensure that booked places are taken up or released if the participant is no longer able to attend, so that the place is not wasted and as many staff as possible, and therefore children and young people, can benefit.
