You're never too young to talk mental health

We know that schools are on the frontline when it comes to children’s mental health. School leaders and teaching staff work hard each day to support the mental health and wellbeing of their pupils and we are determined to help them in every way we can.

Our child mental health experts have also developed a booklet: ‘Supporting mental health and wellbeing in schools’, a series of expert advice films which offer practical guidance about what teachers can do in the classroom to support mental health, and what to do if they are concerned about a child and a leaflet for parents and carers offering tips to talking mental health with children.

                                                      

All our resources will be free to access online through our Schools in Mind network.  To join the Schools in Mind network, please click here.

We understand the importance of supporting our schools so they can support the mental health and wellbeing of our children. We encourage you to make sure that your local school are signed up to start #TalkingMentalHealth.

Support for this campaign has come from Wellcome Trust and Jo Malone London.
