Minds Ahead have recently trained the senior mental health leads in all the 21 schools within the Trust. The training included updates on the national picture and an opportunity for schools to share their existing practice and work through their challenges. The training was well-received and is now informing Trust-wide strategy on key issues such as parental awareness, transition, anger management and exam stress.
