Online Training

In response to growing concerns about mental health among young people, the UK government has implemented several policies and initiatives aimed at supporting mental health in schools. Notably, the government’s commitment is reflected in its green paper on children and young people’s mental health, which highlights the critical role of schools in supporting students’ mental health and wellbeing. Additionally, the Department for Education (DfE) has set out clear guidance for schools, providing funding for training Senior Mental Health Leads as part of a broader strategy to ensure every school and college has a designated lead in mental health by 2025.

This training is meticulously crafted to equip senior school staff and educators with the knowledge, strategies, and tools required to effectively assume the role of Senior Mental Health Leads in education. It aligns with the government’s increased focus on mental health and wellbeing in schools, emphasising the development of a whole-school approach to mental health.

What our Customers Say

I have followed Kelly on social media for a while and have been inspired by her commitment to leading wellbeing at her school and in her trust. Last week I had the privilege of hearing her speak and I was blown away. She is so passionate, so committed and so inspiring in the vision she has for creating healthy schools.

The provision she has co-created is really impressive and models a whole school approach, a whole child approach, and a whole family approach. I am desperate to go and visit and experience it for myself. Her values and her integrity are reflected in the collaborations she has developed with her whole community.
