"Young people are affected disproportionately with more than 50% of mental health problems starting by the age of 14 and 75% by the age of 18." (BBC News)

The positive teaching and training services from Lightbulb Education Solutions focus on developing knowledge, skills and attributes of wellbeing that are key to the PSHE curriculum and student wellbeing programmes.

Our courses and activities are designed to give young people a solution focused toolkit to deal with personal issues and life challenges today, tomorrow and ongoing.

“We realise that stress and stress-related symptoms can prevent people from performing to the best of their ability and can affect their general health and wellbeing.” Estyn (Managing Stress and Wellbeing in the Workplace)

"More than two-thirds of respondents considered quitting the profession in the past year! Workload was the top concern, with 89% citing this as a problem, followed by pay (45%), inspection (44%), curriculum reform (42%) and pupil behaviour (40%).
In addition:
* 83% had reported workplace stress
* 67% said their job has adversely impacted their mental or physical health
* Almost 50% had seen a doctor because of work-related mental or physical health problems
