• MHFA for Schools has been designed with education professionals in mind and is targeted to meet the specific needs of educational environments.
• MHFA Schools will cover key topics impacting on teachers, teaching assistants, and children’s mental health and wellbeing, with a strong practical focus on how to support people experiencing mental distress. MHFA for Schools teaches practical skills that can be used every day.
• Attendees with an interest in helping their schools work towards a whole school approach to mental and emotional health will be signposted towards additional MHFA & NUT training opportunities. The NUT will support members interested in becoming accredited MHFA Ambassadors in their schools.
