The government’s new initiative to fund mental health support teams in schools is designed to provide extra capacity for earlier intervention and ongoing help. From this year, the support teams will start work in 25 areas across England, the largest of which is Greater Manchester.

With our mentally health schools and colleges programme that was launched in March 2018 and then doubled in size in July 2019 our mental health support teams are already in training. You can read more about the Greater Manchester mentally healthy schools and colleges programme and our work in training the new mental health support workers.

The Insight magazine is available to download from the Royal College of Psychiatrists website
