Mental health and wellbeing support for headteachers
Urgent mental health support
If you feel you require urgent mental health support phone the NHS Mental Health Crisis Service on 0300 200 0011.
Need a listening ear?
Free leadership support is available from your local authority. We have a team of school improvement professionals to lend a listening ear. Some will already be known to you in their role as Learning Improvement Officers or Task Group Chairs but this will be different. You may prefer not to talk to someone you have worked with before, or you may wish to continue a relationship.
Up to three 1-2-1 sessions of 50-75 minutes are provided free of charge. Further sessions are available for an additional fee to the school. Sessions are confidential unless there is a safeguarding concern. Headteachers have been provided with contact details separately.
