World Mental Health Day Activity Pack
This World Mental Health Day, we encourage you all to consider how you can create learning opportunities for all your staff and increase their level of understanding of mental health.
As a consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic, many more of us are working remotely. This activity pack is full of suggested activities that you can look to deliver remotely via digital platforms.
