Ormiston Academy hosts a Mental Health Training Day

Ormiston Endeavour Academy is among one of the first schools in the country to host a dedicated mental health training day, under the Youth Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) in Schools scheme. The event was open to 16 delegates from primary and secondary schools across the local region.

Staff who took part were trained on how to provide mental health support to pupils on a first aid basis to facilitate early intervention and recovery, these staff will now take on roles as Youth MHFA Champions in their schools.

The training day also acted as a platform to further promote positive mental health and wellbeing across the whole school environment.
