Back on Track Past Students' Success Stories

Part of the Back on Track box set, this video includes interviews with past students about how Back on Track helped their recovery by enabling them to acheive in learning.

This video is made available on our MHFE YouTube Channel with permission from the Highbury College/Headspace partnership that created Back on Track - thank you to Pam, Sue and the learners who share their stories.

Winning Hearts and Minds is intended to provide you with all the information you need to win over the hearts and minds of managers, practitioners, learners and funders to the idea of 'Prescriptions for Learning.

Central Beds Impact Mental Health Peer Support Annual Report

On the weekly Zoom Meeting I asked about how to make our Annual Report available on the MHFE site.

Whilst I am looking at a means to produce a fully accessible pdf version I thought I would share a link here to see whether the National Pilot Comminity feel its worthwhile sharing or if it is too long / boring. 

We are intending to use it a briefing tool for customers, press and partners, so it is written assuming the reader has no prior knowledge of the National Pilot.

I would welcome any comments feedback or ideas for improvement!

What do young people think about peer support/mentoring for mental health and emotional wellbeing? Call for evidence

Please support the DfE SEN/D implementation team's request for you to share details of their call for evidence from children and young people about what they think about peer support/mentoring for mental health and emotional wellbeing.

"DfE wants as many children and young people as possible to take part in the call for evidence, so that we have a really good picture of what they want from peer support in this area.

IAG and mental health

Does anybody know of any specific courses/workshops linking mental health and IAG?

"Now for the science-y bit"?

I am fairly new in post as a CLMHP coordinator. Last week I attended the BABCP conference to present from a service user perspective but also sit in on some of the lectures, and the week before I participated in the Association for Contextual Behavioural Science World Conference. Why?
