Funded through the £20 million Department for Education (DfE) initiative announced in the 2014 Autumn Statement, the Community Learning Mental Health research project has been testing out whether short, part-time community learning courses help people develop strategies to manage their mild to moderate mental health problems (like stress, worry, anxiety, and depression). From April 2015 - July 2017, 52 learning providers in England are offering  guidance, short community learning courses and refresh sessions to people.


This part of the research ends in July 2017.


What next?
Next steps after July 2017 are:

·         August - November 2017, Ipsos MORI (the external evaluators) will analyse the data and produce a draft report.

·         December 2017, Ipsos MORI will send the draft report for peer review and respond to the reviewers’ recommendations

·         January 2018, we will know what the findings are from the research and DfE will publish them 

·         February - March 2018, DfE will disseminate the findings

If you want us to send you details of the findings, final report, dissemination activities and any resources we produce please give us your details.
