Episode 06: Improving mental health in Scotland

In this episode, Alice talks to Chemistry and Biology teacher Dr Lindsay Robertson about her work in the classroom, and how her school is working to improve the mental health of staff and students.

Lindsay’s school has really championed supporting and talking about mental health for the past three years, and it’s really interesting to hear Lindsay talk about students who are trained as mental health champions for their peers, and staff such as herself who have been trained as mental health first aiders.

She also shares her thoughts on her fantastic school leadership, the benefits of sharing resources with your colleagues on work load and her experiences of the differences between the English and Scottish school systems.

SAMH is the Scottish Association for Mental Health that Lindsay mentions, and you can find our more about them on their website: www.samh.org.uk
