Lancashire Emotional Health Support in Schools

New Course Dates Coming Soon


This service is a joint initiative between Lancashire County Council and Lancaster University, funded by LCC Public Health to provide training and support to Lancashire schools around children’s mental health issues. Bookings and delivery co-ordination of this training is being managed by PAC, and our schools champion partner is Thomas Whitham Sixth Form, Burnley.

Who is providing the training?
The training is provided by the Lancashire Emotional Health in Schools Service. The day will be led by Dr. Richard Slinger, LEHSS Service Lead. Richard is an experienced clinical psychologist with many years’ experience of working in NHS CAMHS and child psychology services, and extensive experience of working collaboratively with schools.

Who is it for?
These courses are part of a comprehensive suite of sessions providing relevant training for the ‘Designated Mental Health Lead’ role in schools, as outlined in the recent government Green Paper.

This session is aimed at primary and secondary school staff, especially SENCOs, pastoral leads, mentors, or any other staff with specific responsibility for pupils’ emotional health. It is particularly relevant for schools developing a ‘Designated Lead for Mental Health’ role.

In order to be eligible to apply for a free place to attend the training delivered by Lancashire Emotional Health in schools you must be employed by a primary, secondary or college within the Lancashire County Council.
