As requested by a number of schools, a Mental Health Lead and Deputy Lead job role description has been put together with input from a number of agencies and schools. As we know for many schools, this is an ‘add on’ responsibility for existing members of staff and we are hoping this will support the message of the role and raise awareness with SLT and other staff members. The job role description also includes 5 new Mental Health Leads Training dates.
