But, as a society, we can choose to improve things which is why we are offering every school in the country access to systems to measure mental wellbeing levels and improve them through simple and effective education and training.” Susan Hills, Vice Principal, South Dartmoor Community College, says: “At a time when teachers' wellbeing is high on the agenda, I've been able to be part of building a wellbeing community at my school, that takes mental health seriously; the training means we can offer support in maintaining mental health but also provide some early help when it's needed.” … Monkey Mind mental wellbeing systems are suitable for nurseries, primary schools and secondary schools although currently the survey is only for KS 3 and older. All UK schools can register for the free Monkey Mind mental wellbeing survey and gain immediate access to their dashboard on Monkey Mind’s website. …
