Reshaping mental health in education - mental health support header image

All schools should be inclusive communities where pupils and staff thrive because mental health is well supported.

Schools and colleges urgently need more leaders, teachers and pastoral staff who know how to promote and protect the mental health and wellbeing of pupils and staff. 

Minds Ahead design and deliver the UK’s only postgraduate, specialist school mental health qualifications, as well as providing bespoke training and support to schools, multi-academy trusts, local authorities and other organisations.
