Event description

Description

Medway’s Partnership Commissioning Team across Medway Clinical Commissioning Group and Medway Council is delighted to invite you to take part in the free Mental Health Services and Schools Link Programme (Link Programme), led by the Anna Freud Centre and funded by the Department for Education.

This exciting 2-day programme will help support the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people in schools and colleges in Medway and will promote closer working and planning between schools and colleges and those providing mental health support.

Please book onto both dates in the cohort.

Why should your school/college be involved?

Schools and colleges are increasingly expected to have a key role in supporting children and young people with their mental health. The Government’s response to the consultation, Transforming children and young people’s mental health provision: a Green Paper and next steps was published in July 2018. It includes incentivising and supporting all schools and colleges to identify and train a designated senior lead for mental health and introducing new Mental Health Support Teams which will improve join-up between schools and the NHS.

We get the best results for children’s mental health when professionals pool their knowledge and understanding in a true partnership. As a result of the Link Programme, schools, colleges and mental health professionals will see improvements in their practice, and children and young people will therefore be better supported to be mentally healthy and build resilience, and services will become more accessible.
