Over recent years schools have felt increasing burdens as the support systems they have traditionally relied upon have been squeezed by rising costs and decreasing budgets. At the same time demands in schools seem to grow, with an increasing awareness of the mental health needs of children and of the severe consequences that may arise if these are not addressed.
This conference aims to support schools’ mental health work by providing opportunities to hear about case studies, learn from good practice, and build on research evidence.
