The Anna Freud Centre works with thousands of schools and FE colleges both within the UK and internationally. Through our training, research and resources, we encourage schools and FE colleges to think about their whole school approach to supporting mental health and wellbeing.
We deliver national programmes funded by the Department for Education, such as the Link Programme, reaching education colleagues all across the country. In addition, we have developed our own network, Schools in Mind, which shares practical, academic and clinical expertise about mental health and wellbeing in schools and FE colleges.
For those education colleagues looking to develop a school or FE college-wide approach to mental health and wellbeing, we have designed the 5 Steps Framework.
Mentally Healthy Schools brings together quality-assured mental health resources, information & advice for schools and further education settings in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
