Building Good Foundations, 1st Edition

By Samantha Garner

Mental health and well-being are becoming increasingly important areas of focus in education, yet schools often find themselves lacking the tools, time and resources to tackle the issues. Mental health support is frequently seen as an additional responsibility of the school setting, rather than a core aspect of it. This practical, fully accessible book provides straightforward guidance and low-budget strategies to help school settings get mental health support right. With a focus on the well-being of both students and staff, chapters focus on techniques to develop self-esteem, manage behaviour and build positive relationships at all levels.

Key features include:

  • low-cost and easy-to-implement strategies suitable for the busy classroom environment, as well as whole school approaches
  • downloadable activities and planning sheets based on cognitive behavioural therapy techniques
  • a focus on building strong foundations based on mental health basics

Refreshingly honest and conscious of the realities of the school environment, this book is a crucial tool for anybody working within education.
