Mental Health and Wellbeing
The concept of wellbeing is central to the aim and objectives of the Northern Ireland Curriculum. Distinct Areas of Learning address wellbeing explicitly:
- Personal Development and Mutual Understanding at primary; and
- Personal Development within Learning for Life and Work (LLW) at post-primary.
There are also opportunities to promote wellbeing across the curriculum. On this page you can find links to many of our resources that support skills development, and preventative strategies where needed, in a range of relevant areas.
This section also lists some of the CCEA qualifications with specification content that can support the promotion of mental health and wellbeing.
