Mental Health In Education

Because we are experts in mental health, we can provide therapy, training and consultation through Innovating Minds CIC.

Together we can create a well-crafted shift in culture that is driven by a school's staff. The result -
 students can access help, staff can focus on their teaching, there is a reduction in the number and severity of behavioural incidents, there are financial savings in HR costs, and an approach recognised by Ofsted. We equip your school with the skills to create a sustainable impact for generations to come.
