About this course

About this event

We are delighted to be bringing together local area leads, schools/colleges and mental health professionals that took part in the Mental Health Services and Schools Link workshops. This event will link up different areas that have worked on the programme to celebrate their learning and share best practice. It will be an opportunity for programme participants to network and share their successes and planning for the future.

A member of the project team from the Anna Freud Centre will share our experience of running the programme. There will be an opportunity to hear from colleagues from different areas about how they implemented the programme in their locality, the impacts it has had and how they are planning to take things forward. 

Who is the event for?

Local area leads, schools/colleges and mental health professionals who participated in the two one-day workshops as part of the Mental Health Services and Schools Link Programme, along with those interested in finding out more. For further information please email gemma.nieb@annafreud.org.
