This three year programme launched in Easter 2017 is fully funded by the Department of Health with a value of £200 per person trained. In the programme’s first year we aim to train a member of
staff in over 1000 secondary schools to become a Youth MHFA Champion – someone with the skills to spot the signs of mental health issues in young people and guide them to a place of support. By the
end of 2020 every secondary school in England will have been offered the opportunity to attend this training. This is a major step forward in our campaign to ensure that every school has access to
Youth MHFA training - and our social mission to train one in ten people in Mental Health First Aid skills.
