Funded by the Department for Education, Education for Wellbeing is England's largest research trial of school-based mental health interventions. The aim of the programme is to evaluate pioneering ways of supporting the mental wellbeing of pupils. We support schools in trying out different interventions and examine their impact on pupils’ mental health and wellbeing. The Anna Freud Centre is delivering Education for Wellbeing and the Evidence Based Practice Unit is evaluating the approaches, examining their impact on pupils’ mental health and wellbeing.

Chief investigator: Professor Jess Deighton
