" knowledge and resources required to undertake a school based audit on emotional health and well being

" resources to implement an emotional health and well being curriculum.

Becoming an Emotionally Healthy School helps school staff, people working with schools and healthy schools co-ordinators to create, develop and promote a whole school approach to emotional health and well-being.
