Conference Presentation 2015: Promoting Well-being in Primary & Post Primary Schools
A positive school climate and culture is fundamental to staff and student well-being.
The presence of one supportive adult in a young person’s life is critically important to their well-being, sense of connectedness, self confidence and ability to cope with difficulties.
The more vulnerable the young person, the higher the risk of increased prevalence of mental health difficulties.
A young person’s ability to recognise and express their emotions is fundamental to his/her capacity to learn.
