Penumbra works with schools and educational organisations across Scotland to raise awareness of mental wellbeing.
Our project workers can visit schools and other organisations to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing issues including exam stress, looking after your mental health, identifying helpful coping strategies and making positive choices. For more information about youth project workers in your area contact your local Penumbra office.
Penumbra can also offer mental health awareness training and self harm awareness raising training for teachers. We are currently developing a pilot project in East Glasgow to provide wide-ranging support for pupil and teacher wellbeing. Our flagship school will be offered a programme which supports pupils in dealing with exam stress, starting before their prelims and with specific sessions available to pupils on the day of the exam itself. We are currently developing materials including a training pack for teachers and a prefect pack for S6 pupils supporting younger years.
If you would like more information about the expansion of this scheme please contact Penumbra’s Glasgow office.
