CWMT Mental Health Book Club

This free book club is primarily aimed at mental health leads in UK primary or secondary schools.  If you have a different role, or work with an organisation other than a school and would like to join, you are welcome to do so.

Once a term you will recieve a book and associated resources with the aim of boosting your understanding, skills and confidence or ideas when working to promote or support the mental health of children and young people. 

For an idea of the kind of books you can expect, take a look at:

The Jessica Kingsley book catalogue

Before each book club title is dispatched, you will be asked to opt in to receive the new title.  

For each book you receive, you will be asked to complete a short online survey to help assess the impact that the book and associated resources has had on your skills, understanding and confidence.

We are working with the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust (CWMT) to provide a School Mental Health Network for Wiltshire schools
