Who are we and what we do
Lancashire Emotional Health in Schools and Colleges is commissioned and funded by Lancashire County Council to provide training and support to school and college staff on a range of topics relating to children’s mental health.
We are based at Lancaster University, and all of our training team are Clinical Psychologists. We have extensive experience working in NHS mental health services, and working collaboratively with schools, and we are professional trainers. All staff are registered with the Health and Social Care Professions Council.

Our work aims to help school and college staff to better support the emotional and mental wellbeing of children and young people. Through training and support schools will feel more confident to both understand and manage children’s emotional health difficulties, leading to improvements in their mental health and reduced need for specialist services. We also offer support for school leads on staff wellbeing, and deliver a comprehensive programme designed to help schools and colleges establish processes for supporting the wellbeing of staff, which includes training and facilitated peer support meetings.
Our training is delivered as a mix of online sessions (via Microsoft Teams) and face-to-face sessions held at our brand new training room in the Health Innovation One building at Lancaster University.
All our work is free of charge to schools and colleges in the LCC footprint.
