Unlock understanding – in 20 minutes a day

Our CPD-accredited e-learning puts mental health training at your fingertips. With content created by mental health experts, teachers, children and the NHS – it’s all packaged into bite-sized chunks, so you can fit high level training around your busy schedule.

Free a child’s future

When it comes to mental health, early intervention makes a massive difference.

As a teacher, you’re already in the unique position of transforming futures. And with today’s mental health crisis affecting our teaching practice more than ever before, understanding and supporting pupils’ mental wellbeing is now a crucial skill.

Although senior mental health leads play a vital role in helping children to thrive emotionally, socially and academically, we believe every adult in school can become an ally.

That collective approach not only helps the pupils in our care but collectively eases the pressure on the entire community and healthcare services.

The long-term result? A healthier and more resilient society.

Why not sign up today for a free taster module? You’ll discover the learning outcomes and meet our expert tutors.

You can also experience the immersive, interactive content, get a real-life perspective through our case studies, and pick up simple techniques to use in your classroom.

Support pupils quickly – for better outcomes

Our training empowers you to signpost help and to pass on coping skills exactly when children need them most.

In some cases, that early intervention will be all that’s needed. By minimising the need for external agency support, the pupil avoids the inevitable long waiting times, which can lead to their challenges becoming worse, or more entrenched.

Of course, some children will go on to need additional help but these swift, targeted coping skills can still be very valuable while they wait.

    As the pupil wellbeing lead for my Federation, the ‘Every Adult an Ally’ Webinar was immensely useful for me! It gave an incredible insight into how Blue Mental Health Training differs from other offers currently available. 
    Daniel’s insights into early support intervention in schools showed just how Blue Training can look to create a holistic model which upskills staff, as well as sharing the best practice for supporting students. This feels just the right approach for us across all our schools and I highly recommend this service.”

    Our unique story

    Our journey began with a commitment to empower every adult with the knowledge and tools needed to be a vital ally in fostering a mentally-resilient society.

    Blue Mental Health Education and Training is staffed by an award-winning team of mental health practitioners who specialise in children and young people, experienced in delivering effective, proven methods of mental health training for schools.

    Facing a crisis in children’s mental health, Blue joined forces with NTH Solutions – with a shared ambition to make a positive difference.

    This unique set-up means that every sign up helps fund frontline NHS services.

    NTH Solutions was established to provide support services to North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust. And today, its 700-strong workforce supplies those services nationwide, generating income to be reinvested in patient care.

    Our partnership was solidified with a joint focus group, involving teachers and parents – in line with our belief that collaboration is the key to addressing mental health challenges successfully. The insights we gathered from the focus group formed the foundation of the course we offer to schools today. 

    Testing and feedback every step of the way have improved and refined our practical course, with a bi-weekly webinar to open up the conversation and a digital hub, streamlining access to course materials and creating a community for sharing experiences.
