Join this webinar to learn how schools in Europe can prioritise and actively promote the mental health and well-being of schoolchildren within safe and inclusive contexts.

There is a general consensus that academic knowledge on its own is not enough for young people to achieve active citizenship and face the socio-economic realities in their lives so as to avoid inequity, poverty, discrimination, marginalisation and exclusion. Twenty-first-century education needs to go beyond narrow sectoral goals such as academic achievement and contribute actively towards the health and wellbeing of children and young people, whose mental health needs are becoming more evident and demanding.

In the webinar, a framework on how well-being and mental health in schools may be promoted through a systemic, whole-school approach will be presented, with illustrations of how this may be implemented in the curriculum, the classroom context and the whole-school ecology. A whole-school approach mobilises the various resources of the whole school community, including the active engagement and voices of students, staff, parents and professionals, towards a collaborative effort to promote the mental health and well-being of all members of the community.
