The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust (CWMT) is a registered charity that provides mental health training talks, and resources to young people and those who work with or care for them.

The session will last for 90 minutes and will include an overview of anxiety in the context of modern-day challenges facing all of us, specifically Covid-19. It is suitable for primary and secondary school teachers, teaching assistants, key workers and support staff.

The session will provide:

  • an overview of the physiology of stress and how the stress response has adapted to modern challenges.
  • some of the ways that anxiety affects our emotions, thoughts and behaviour.
  • evidence-based ways that we might more effectively manage anxiety in ourselves, and how we might best support others who are experiencing anxiety.This session will be delivered using a mix of information slides and film clips plus discussion exercises and a chance to share good practice.
