The Project Aims

Project Background and Details

The project is an action research process and will be modelled on our current projects in schools which were developed in response to a strong evidence base in accordance with Public Health England (2015). They identified eight key principles (see Figure below) which are important in promoting emotional health and well-being within schools and colleges. We currently obtain the views of staff, students and families connected with the organisation through conversations and anonymous surveys. The questions asked are informed by The 10 Element Map of Mental Health (McDonald and O‘Hara, 1998) which states that mental health and well-being is the product of the balance between promoting and demoting factors in five areas: Environmental Quality, Social Participation, Emotional Processing, Self-Esteem and Self-Management. The data are then analysed using thematic analysis and mapped against the 8 key principles.

The proposed project will consist of:
