At Mental Health UK, we want to support you during this period and build on your existing skills, by providing you with free on-line resilience training. The training is based on our young people’s programme, Bloom, which is delivered in schools and colleges across the UK. Bloom equips young people aged 14–18 with the tools and knowledge to maintain their mental health through life’s transitions, both now and in the future.

After attending the on-line training, you will receive the Bloom resources so you can facilitate the resilience sessions in the classroom, and the Mental Health UK team will be available to support if there are any questions about the delivery.

We also encourage you to think about signing up for Bloom, where our training associates will co-deliver the full programme with you in your school or college.

What is the free resilience training?

The training is delivered on-line through an easy to use platform where you will engage with other teaching staff and our expert mental health training associates. The content is evidence based and centred around our existing young people’s resilience programme, Bloom.

Who is it for?

• This is for you if you teach young people aged 14-18
• You are based at a school or college in the UK
• You are concerned about the mental health and resilience young people you support
• You are able to undertake online training for 1 hour or 3 hours

How does it work?

We strongly advise you to watch the Bloom induction video as this will give you an overview of the programme. There are two different types of training available. The first is a 3-hour session providing you with full training on the programme, preparing you to deliver in your school or college. The second is a series of 3 individual one-hour workshops focused on resilience building around stressors.

Once you have attended, you will receive the Bloom resources and our expert mental health training associates will be available to support you and answer any questions you may have about the delivery.

All delegates receive the following resources for free:

• Free training in workshops for young people from expert facilitators in mental health.
• PowerPoint slides to support teaching.
• Electronic versions of teacher guidebooks and student workbooks.
