COVID-19 and its impact on Mental Health Awareness Training

Due to updated Government advice recommending the restriction of travel and unnecessary group meetings, we took the decision to cancel all future Mental Health Awareness Training days, effective from Tuesday 17th March. This meant that the following training sessions were cancelled:

Tuesday 17th March      Newquay, London, Norwich

Thursday 19th March    London

Friday 20th March         Birmingham

Monday 23rd March       Birmingham, Salisbury, Canterbury

Tuesday 24th March      Birmingham, Canterbury, Stoke, Welwyn

Wednesday 25th March Blackpool

Friday 27th March         Birmingham

Monday 30th March       Bristol, Dudley


The Anna Freud Centre would like to thank you for signing up to this course and your commitment to Children and Young People’s Mental Health. Due to the uncertainty around coronavirus, we are unlikely to reschedule face to face training events but we are exploring the option of offering Mental Health Awareness webinars, as an alternative for those already booked on.

 We will not be taking any further bookings for MHAT.

In the interim, we recommend that you join our Schools in Mind network to keep up to date with the latest news and resources. Also, please follow the link to find newly created resources on mental health and coronavirus: This includes advice for young people, advice for parents and carers, and advice for schools and colleges.

We thank you again for your willingness to further your knowledge and understanding of Mental Health and Wellbeing and we look forward to working with you in the future.

Please feel free to get in contact with any queries on but please be aware that the MHAT inbox will no longer be regularly manned from Monday 31st March 2020.
