Mental Health First Aid

As a Trust we are proud to be developing a network of Mental Health First Aiders, staff who are specifically trained by Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England to work within all our schools.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England teaches professionals how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis. These staff have been taught how to listen, reassure and respond.

They will guide and support a young person and their family in accessing further services, where appropriate.
