Winter wellbeing: toolkit of resources
Resources for students and staff to help support good mental wellbeing this winter.
The festive season is usually associated with joy, happiness and celebration, but for some it may not always be a positive time.
The shorter days, colder temperatures and the pressures associated with this time of year can negatively impact our wellbeing, and it can be easy to forget to look after ourselves. Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) may be an issue some young people experience, and a break from the structure of school or college can be difficult for some students too.
This toolkit contains lesson plans and supporting activities to help pupils to look after their wellbeing, as well as to understand the importance of self-care and connections with others.
The toolkit also includes a resource for staff on building good mental wellbeing, as well as information on seeking further support.
