The PE Teachers Guide to Basic First Aid Skills in Mental Health

PE staff are often in a unique position in a school environment in relation to students’ mental health and are often the first to notice when our young people might be struggling.

PE Teachers often have a different relationship with students and see them in a range of contexts eg whilst traveling informally to sports fixtures, in the changing room and in a range of activities where physical resilience is challenged.  This is particularly relevant in the areas of self-harm and eating disorders. 

However, research tells us that many staff do not always recognise early indicators of poor mental health and often need more confidence in how to respond.  

This bite sized workshop will give you the knowledge, skills, and confidence to notice when a student is not coping, how to start a conversation and how to help students manage better by developing their own self-help toolkit.
