Developing a Whole School Wellbeing Strategy at Tregolls School
This is a short presentation by Mary Yucel the Mental Health Coordinator at Tregolls School. The presentation outlines the wellbeing strategy introduced at the school. Mary's presentation was shared with mental health leads across Cornwall as part of our work with HeadStart Kernow which is a lottery funded project. We found the session to be valuable and Mary kindly agreed it could be shared more widely.
Mary Yucel has a BSc in Cognitive Behavioural Therapeutic Approaches and an MA in Professional Writing, which it turns out is the perfect combination for working in the wellbeing team at a primary school and transforming ideas into practical strategies. An activity she passionately enjoys. She grew up in Cornwall but spent over a decade living in Turkey raising her multicultural children and writing for newspapers. She returned with her family five years ago and has been working in schools ever since. Currently she is the Mental Health Coordinator at Tregolls School.
