1 September 2019 to 1 March 2020

We are delighted to announce that Anna Freud 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 

Who is the training for?

The training will be available for up to two members of staff from over 1900 eligible schools and colleges.

How do I book a place?

If your school or college is listed on the directory, please email mhat@annafreud.org with the dates of the training you would like to attend.
