Funded ROAR training places for primary school staff in Merseyside

Primary school staff in Merseyside are invited to take part in a new series of ROAR courses that will run from January to March 2020 in Liverpool, Sefton, Wirral, St Helens and Knowsley.

The ROAR Response is an evidence-based mental health model that focuses on building resilience. It’s designed to enable primary school staff to support a whole-school approach to developing children’s mental health.

Funded by Merseyside’s Violence Reduction Unit (VRU), and facilitated by Merseyside Youth Association, staff will be taught how to identify the main signs and symptoms of a child experiencing mental distress, whilst knowing what can be done in school to support that child.

Staff will also have access to a range of useful resources and tools to monitor children’s mental health and offer self-care strategies.

Delegate places can be booked on the ROAR Response website.
