Summary

This pilot project has met its hoped for outcomes related to targeting staff in secondary school communities, especially in areas of need. Furthermore, there are plans on how to sustain this training and see it have a wider roll out across the authorities.

It will take time to achieve the aim of supporting more young people, to embed these practices across secondary school communities. More needs to be done in this area as mental health continues to be identified as an area of need, with regards to training for staff and young people's general health and wellbeing. This project tackles these issues locally, with a view to having an impact nationally over the coming years and meeting those aims set out in the Scottish Government's Mental Health Strategy.
