Three sessions of 75 minutes each for each class (regular class size – classes can’t be joined together). This can mean making use of double periods or cutting into other classes, but the content does take 75 minutes to get through in each session, not including time for everyone to arrive.
Depending on the structure of the timetable this can mean some shuffling of classes, which can be a challenge.
In addition, school staff need to be trained in Youth MHFA. Not everyone needs to have received the training. Students should be aware of which staff members are willing to talk about MHFA issues.
Prior to the training, a session is required of approximately ten minutes (ideally slotted into a school assembly) so students hear what the training will and won’t do. Half an hour with the school staff (as many as possible – ideally a staff meeting) is also required.
