Mental Health courses

Leading Mentally Healthy Schools


The two-day programme is aimed at senior leaders of all phases to enable reflection and action planning around whole-school approaches to mental health provision.

The programme has been developed by Health Education England (HEE) and the School Development Support Agency (SDSA) in partnership with an expert group of educational psychologists, education consultants and mental health organisations and responds to the areas highlighted in the recent Green Paper – ‘Transforming Children and Young People’s Mental Health Provision’ (December 2017).

Leading a Mentally Healthy School aims:

  • to enable and empower senior leaders to put mental health at the heart of strategic school improvement.
  • to equip senior leaders with practical and sustainable approaches that can be implemented on return to school.

On completion of the course schools will have developed a personalised action plan and policy linked to mental health provision in their school.
