Mental Health Awareness Training in Secondary Schools
The 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, centered around a one-day face-to-face training.
The 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.
Who is the training for?
The first two years of the three year programme were delivered by Mental Health First Aid England (2017 - 2018). We are delighted to have been commissioned to deliver the third and final year of this Mental Health Awareness Training (MHAT) training programme. This one-day training will be freely available to those schools who:
- Have not yet received Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Training in 2017 – 2018 and
- Are identified as secondary, middle deemed secondary, all through and sixth form colleges
The training will be available for up to two members of staff from each eligible secondary school.
When will the training take place?
The training will take place across England in over 100 locations between 1st September 2019 - 31st March 2020. View the full list of training dates here.
