Mental Health Training

The government is investing £9.3 million to offer every school and college mental health training, ensuring more young people get the right help at the right time. 

Key facts:
  • Every school and college will be offered training, raising awareness of mental health concerns and improving referrals to specialist help when needed. 
  • Backed by £9.3 million, the scheme will deliver more joined up care and help to identify mental health issues before they become more acute. 
  • We are also announcing the next wave of trailblazer areas to benefit from Mental Health Support Teams, outlined in the mental health green paper. These will help schools and colleges to speed up access to specialist services. 

Why this matters

Bringing school and college staff into the same room as NHS professionals and encouraging them to work together will ensure more pupils get the right help at the right time.
