Training for senior mental health leads to be made available from autumn 2021

The DfE will offer schools and colleges a grant to pay for senior mental health lead training from autumn 2021. 

While many schools and colleges already have a mental health lead, the knowledge and skills they have varies, and with mental health and wellbeing being a top priority for schools and colleges, our goal is to provide senior leads with the development they need to lead change and develop or introduce a Whole School or College Approach to wellbeing and mental health.

Grants will be available for up to a third of schools and colleges in England between September 2021 and March 2022, with the aim of all schools and colleges benefiting by 2025. 

Further guidance is available here.
