Teachers at every school in the country to receive special training in mental health issues

Teachers at every school in the country will be given special training to recognise mental health issues in children, as part of a new Government initiative.

Prime Minister Theresa May hailed his intervention and said it would help "smash the stigma" surrounding mental health and make thousands of people realise that they are "not alone".

Now teachers and other school staff will receive practical advice on how to recognise issues including depression and anxiety, self-harm, and eating disorders. Over the next three years some 3,000 staff, covering every secondary school in England, will be given special training to deal with pupils' mental health problems.

The programme is delivered by social enterprise Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England, backed by £200,000 in Government funding and will be extended to primary schools by 2022.
