Online mental health and emotional wellbeing training and support for East Sussex schools and colleges (The DfE Wellbeing for Education Return programme) is funded by the Department for Education and Department for Health and Social Care and developed and delivered in close collaboration with Health Education England, Public Health England, and NHS England and Improvement.

This is nationwide package of training and support is for staff to promote the mental wellbeing and resilience of children and young people, teachers and parents and carers. It aims to facilitate mental health recovery, in light of the impact of COVID-19 and lockdown.  

The training has been developed by the e-learning platform MindEd, working closely with the Anna Freud Centre (AFC), and will be delivered to all East Sussex schools and colleges (age 5-19) by a team of key Education professionals in ESCC and our partners in Health and Social Care.

Wellbeing for Education Return has been developed with input from an expert advisory group and wider network of mental health and education experts, advisers and providers such as headteachers, teachers, educational and clinical developmental psychologists and the voluntary sector. The training will include content in line with our local context and requirements.
