Featured below and attached please find a flyer for a (reasonably-priced) BERA one day workshop / conference on Researching Mental Health and Education: Where are we now, to be held at the University of West London on Friday, 12 July, 2019.
Mental health is currently a key focus of social policy in Britain, with educational settings increasingly looked to for provision of support in this area. Yet mental health and wellbeing remain relatively under-researched in the education sector. This conference will provide a timely and much needed forum to bring together practitioners, academics, researchers, students and others with a keen interest in the area of education, mental health and wellbeing.
It offers opportunities to learn about the latest research, debate key issues, share good practice, and help set a research agenda to drive forward new research across all educational settings, from early years to adult com,munity learning. It includes a keynote by Sinead McBrearty, from the Education Support Partnership (a charity dedicated to improving the wellbeing and mental health of the entire education workforce), symposia, poster presentations, parallel roundtable discussions, and a panel discussion on ‘hot topics’ warranting urgent research attention.
