AEPA Roundtable: Mental Health & Wellbeing in light of COVID-19
A Mental Health & Wellbeing as a core service within a partnership
About this event
This was true of Birmingham Education Partnership before the pandemic –this session will also consider where we are in the light of COVID.
The session will hear from Birmingham Education Partnership CEO Tim Boyes (who is also working with the city leading on inclusion) with the session led by BEP’s mental health & emotional lead Anna Robinson. Anna Robinson has worked with vulnerable children, young people and families in Birmingham for a long time. She is currently the lead for mental health and wellbeing at Birmingham Education Partnership, working with colleagues across the city to develop sustainable approaches to wellbeing in schools. Her interests are around the importance of resilience as the mitigating factor between wellbeing and mental distress and, as an integrative psychotherapist and supervisor, she is committed to the development of others’ psychoeducation and relational approaches to wellbeing.
BEP will focus on how COVID-19 has presented new and unique challenges for both pupils/staff mental wellbeing. It will be an open discussion and we will think about the elements and interventions schools have successfully adopted, both inside and outside the classroom, to help encourage mental health and wellbeing.
