About the Mental Health Awareness for GPs programme

The successful collaboration between the Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health Trust, its partner CCGs and the many GP practices that have hosted the training is now expanding to include elearning. In an important joint project with Health Education England’s (HEE) elearning for healthcare programme (elfh), Trust clinicians will develop a series of elearning sessions to supplement the Academy’s face to face programme. The Academy’s elearning will be offered nationally by elfh.

With this expanded education programme the Academy aims to retain the local character of its programme at the same time as improving access to its learning. More GPs will be able to access the Academy training through the convenience and flexibility of elearning. The same rigorous approach to the educational content that has helped make its face-to-face sessions successful will apply to the elearning, through the Trust’s partnership with the leading public sector elearning programme for the health service.

The Mental Health Awareness for GPs elearning resource is now live. It has initially launched with 3 elearning sessions. Please use the ‘How to access’ page to register for access, and do keep checking back for more news on follow-up sessions.
