Young people disengaged from employment, training and education are more likely to experience youth homelessness. However, other risk factors for homelessness; such as mental health problems or learning difficulties, are also likely to impact on a young person’s ability to engage positively with education. PIE4Education is a new initiative from the St Basils’ PIE team aiming to help schools become more ‘psychologically-informed’ and thus, more able to work positively and collaboratively with young people who are struggling with emotional and psychological problems.
If you would like to learn more about what a PIE is and the St Basils’ PIE journey, we have quarterly online briefings plus a Q&A session hosted by our CEO, Jean Templeton and our PIE Lead, Dr Amanda Skeate.
