Motivational speaker and wellness expert Lisa Phillips is delighted to be working with the YWCA Cambridgeshire and Peterborough on a new mental health initiative in schools.
The new ‘Train the Trainer’ initiative offers schools the opportunity to train their own teachers to be able to deliver some of the early intervention programmes, as well as providing those teachers with the resources to train others within the school to identify and develop support for specific mental health issues and signpost those needing clinical intervention.
The launch of the service comes as schools look to tackle the growing issue of mental health in young people, whilst navigating ever decreasing budgets. This week the first official estimate of the nation’s vulnerable minors was revealed by the Children’s Commissioner for England, which showed in the region of 800,000 children in the UK suffering from mental health problems.
