This week is Children’s Mental Health Week and our sponsors, Flagship Training, are doing vital work in the community to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing. 

One in four (16 million) people in the UK will experience a mental health issue at some point in their life. At any one time, 1/6 of the population will be experiencing a mental health problem. 

One in ten school children have a diagnosable mental health condition, and 75% of all mental health problems are established by the time someone is 18 years old. 

However, 75% of young people who are experiencing mental health problems aren’t receiving the support they need. 

Flagship Training run First Aid and Mental Health in the workplace training and are now going into schools to support teachers with mental health training, with an adaptation specifically for their workplace setting. 

They aim to support the development and progression of young people and their mental health, and the Peterborough DALROD Phantoms are proud to be associated with a company who do such important work in the community.

Pete Rushmer, Director of Flagship Training, said: “Flagship are passionate about supporting people of all types whether for children in schools or adults in workplaces.  Creating positive frameworks, policies and proactive and open channels of communication is the key to enabling fulfilling workplaces that are inclusive and supportive for all.”
