Earlier this week, it was World Mental Health Day, so now seems the perfect time to remind you of the vast array of evidence-based resources linked to mental health and wellbeing in the Tooled Up library. Our wellbeing category currently contains 160 resources and is growing constantly, in response to your needs.
We can’t wait for our very own Mental Health Education Week, exclusively for our Tooled Up community, starting on November 15th. Get ready for a week of evening webinars, all of which are open for registration now! Find out about anger management strategies with Dr Anna Colton, self-harm with national expert, Professor Ellen Townsend, the importance of sleep for mental health with Joanna Kippax of Wye Sleep, OCD and anxiety with psychiatrist, Dr Anna Conway Morris and the role of clinical psychologists in supporting young people’s mental health with Dr Tamsyn Noble. Tickets are on a first come, first served basis. Make sure you don’t miss out by registering now!
Here at Tooled Up, we are listening and responding to your questions and queries. Based on parents’ requests, we have introduced a resource that can help introduce boundaries to children’s gaming habits, one that can aid the home-school partnershipand make parents’ evenings a little easier and, just to prove we can be light-hearted, we have added some fun resources on the latest Bond film. We asked Ian Kinane, Professor of English Literature at the University of Roehampton, to get us up to speed ahead of seeing the new release. Check out his ‘five things you need to know before you see No Time to Die’ resource and test your knowledge with his James Bond Quiz.
If you prefer educational webinars, here is a menu of what we are offering in November.
