Schools and colleges in receipt of institution-level state funding are eligible for a senior mental health grant. The government does not currently plan to fund senior mental health lead training for education staff in independent settings with fee-paying pupils and students, but they may access the same Department for Education quality-assured training as state-funded schools.

Further information on eligibility and how schools and colleges can assess their specific learning needs and preferences, and select the most suitable quality-assured course is available at: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/senior-mental-health-lead-training.
