Change Your Whole School Story

Whole school mental health

Real change demands deeper thinking, wider consideration, and radical shifts. Brave leaders know this. I hope you are one of them.  

Here at The Mental Wealth Factory, we are intent on playing a key part in improving whole school mental health in secondary education.

Positive change starts with us - the leaders, teachers, policy makers, parents.

It starts with our own bold leadership, our own focus on improving mental health and our own performance. 

If you're ready for a challenging conversation and fresh thinking, it's time to get in touch.

Successful schools? They foster skill to embrace rapid change, and to respond confidently to the unknown. It requires BOLD mental health leadership. Is that you?

Deputy Principal, Attleborough Academy

It was great to have Shirley visit our Academy. We think it really important to continuously raise awareness of mental health related issues and how they affect all people in our community and how together potentially we can support people through life. It is fact that we all have mental health and looking after our staff is as important as our students. All of us live in a world that can seem very stressful and Shirley reminded us of what we can do to cope with this a little better, which in turn will help us support our young people better. Thank you to Shirley for her time and support!

Shirley spoke at a Masterclass that we ran and I was really impressed with the way in which she connected with the audience and gave them great insight into the benefits of controlling the mind for better results. The short example that she demonstrated to the audience was immediately impactful, and I have no reservation in recommending her for a discussion on how a longer conversation can deliver life changing results..!

Shirley had the very tall order of sharing the concept of Resilience (in 15 minutes) to a group of 15-17 year olds as part of the Young Enterprise Gloucestershire Launch Event 2019. Shirley struck a chord with some key messages around taking action and brought in some great role models who weren't afraid to fail. The feedback was great and I am sure that everyone in the room left feeling inspired.
