What do we need to put in place?

There must always be a teacher present with the teen MHFA instructor in each classroom (or another suitably responsible adult when the course is run outside of a school setting).

Ideally, a student welfare officer, counsellor, chaplain or youth worker should also be present in each class, however, this is not always possible. At the minimum, the student welfare coordinator or counsellor needs to be available at all times when teen MHFA sessions are being run, in order to attend to the needs of any student who becomes distressed.
