We are delighted to invite you to join our webinar on Wednesday, 4th October.


Find out more about this ground-breaking initiative to help CCGs, Local Authorities and Children and Young Peoples mental health services work together with schools and colleges to provide timely mental health support to children and young people.  The programme has already been successfully piloted in 255 schools and CYPMHS, across 27 CCGs in England (2015-2016) and independently evaluated. The pilot was developed in response to recommendations set out in Future in Mind to improve access to mental health support for children and young people, by bringing together schools and CYPMHS professionals to two free, joint workshops.  DfE have now commissioned AFNCCF to deliver the programme to a further 20 CCG areas, and up to 1,200 schools and colleges. This webinar is an early engagement event to find out more about the new programme and how new localities can get involved with this new phase of delivery.  You can find out about what the programme involves and how it will be evaluated and how to register expressions of interest.

The webinar will be hosted by Jaime Smith, Miranda Wolpert and Laurie Day and will be a celebration of the pilot Mental Health Services and Schools Link Programme (2015-2016) and a Q&A opportunity for those interested in the programme for 2017-2018.
