Mental Health Training for Teachers in Surrey
The role of teachers and other education providers often goes above and beyond the school curriculum. Given the proportion of time teachers spend with students, it is no surprise they also fulfil a vital role in lending emotional support to young people struggling with mental health.
The Mental Health Awareness Training for Education Professionals course is designed to help teachers understand a variety of mental health issues and provides guidance on what options are available to help students overcome their mental health challenges and look to the future with renewed optimism.
Mental Health Student Workshops
We are proud to champion ‘Mental Health and Me’ student workshops throughout Surrey. These hour-long workshops are tailored around each school and run for 4 week periods. Between 10 and 15 selected students will meet each week to discuss various topics in a safe and secure environment. We believe in giving the students autonomy to select what issues are covered, which could be anything from self-harm to peer pressure and anxiety.
Mental Health Topics Covered

Why the Role of Schools Matters
Schools have an important part to play in supporting young people with their mental health. Around 10% of children are now reported to have a diagnosable mental health condition. The sooner problems are identified, then the sooner a child can be supported. Sometimes the signs of a child or young person struggling can be difficult to spot, yet the more awareness there is in schools the more likelihood there is a child will feel comfortable expressing themselves and opening up to an adult they trust.
