In England, 1 in 8 five to 19-year-olds have some form of mental health problem.
This means that it is very likely that there will be children with mental health issues in your school, who need support.
It is vital to ensure that your school is a mentally healthy school. A mentally healthy school sees positive mental health and wellbeing as fundamental to its values, mission and culture.
Becoming a mentally healthy school must be a whole-school approach, involving governors, senior leaders, teachers and all school staff, as well as parents, carers and the wider community.
