Mental health training and support available to schools

Providers of mental health training and support from across the Council, NHS and voluntary sector have joined forces to create a resource outlining what they collectively offer to schools and other education settings in Havering.  


The resource has been updated for the Spring term 2019 and is note available here or by going to > Professionals Gateway > Training > Mental health training and support for Havering schools.


It outlines training available to senior leaders, teachers and TAs, as well as sessions and support that can be delivered direct to young people and parents.  


Updates for the Spring term include: 


  • Free places for Primary School staff (one place per school) on the Youth Mental Health First Aid two-day training course.
  • Inclusion of bereavement and generic counselling services available from Havering and Brentwood Bereavement Service.
  • Parent workshops from You and Me Counselling


No account or login details are required to access the resource, so it is accessible to all staff.  


If you have any questions regarding the training and support listed in the resource, please use the training provider contact details provided within it.  


If you have any general feedback on the resource, or if there are other organisations your school works with that you think should be included in it, please contact Claire Alp ( or 01708 431365)
