To ask the Scottish Government to what extent it will direct local authorities regarding the mental health first aid training for teachers that was announced in its Programme for Government.
Answered by: Clare Haughey 20 September 2018
We will work with our partners in local government to deliver the commitment set out in this year's Programme for Government. All local authorities will be offered the training which will complement the range of mental health strategies that are already in place within schools and local authorities.
