Senior Mental Health Lead Training
The Department for Education (DfE) created a new quality criteria for Senior Mental Health Lead training courses, which help to define this important senior role in schools. While many schools and colleges already have a mental health lead, the knowledge and skills they have may vary. With mental health being a top priority for all educational settings, the goal is for a senior member of staff within the school or college to gain confidence and competence in leading the mental health provision across the whole school.
“It really makes you consider your setting and what needs addressing in terms of mental wellbeing”
