Senior Mental Health Lead Training for Schools

On 10 May 2021, DfE announced £9.5m in funding. The government has committed to offer senior mental lead training to all state schools and colleges by 2025. Currently around a third of schools and colleges in England will be able to access a grant to pay to help develop the knowledge and skills in settings to implement an effective whole school or college approach to mental health and wellbeing.

What’s the reality?

Employers aren’t all aware that they have a legal obligation under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, to assess the risk of stress-related ill health arising from work activities; and under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, to take reasonably practicable measures to control that risk.

Thriving at work…

The government commissioned ‘Thriving at work’ report states employers of all sizes should work to ‘core standards’ by:

  • Forming a mental health at work plan
  • Promoting communication and open conversations
  • Raising awareness and reducing stigma
  • Providing a mechanism for monitoring actions and outcomes

Are you meeting or exceeding these standards?
