Mental Health Awareness Week

Teachers, and those with student welfare responsibility, may at last have a new resource to help them support young people experiencing eating disorders.

Such is the case of rapidly increasing rates in disordered eating across the country, it is now becoming more and more challenging for headteachers, school wellbeing teams and campus-based care staff to find swift and appropriate options for support.

During Mental Health Awareness Week the Mental Health Foundation (MHF) is urging policy makers to introduce mental health training for teachers.
