FREE Mental Health Awareness Training for Secondary Schools

17 June 2019 Last updated at 02:43

Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families have been commissioned by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) to offer a comprehensive free Mental Health Awareness Training to over 1800 secondary schools and colleges.

This one-day Mental Health Awareness Training for secondary schools is underpinned by the Centre's longstanding experience of working within schools to support pupil, parent/carer and staff mental health. The training is grounded in a rigorous evidence base and will take place across England in over 130 locations between September 2019 and February 2020. It covers:

  • What the evidence tells us about mental health difficulties in schools
  • Spotting the early signs of a mental health problem
  • Positive approaches to promoting mental health and wellbeing in the whole school community

To find out whether your secondary school or college is eligible and to register to attend a training, please visit www.annafreud.org/mhat
