5 Steps to Mental Health and Wellbeing is a free, evidence-based framework to help you develop a whole-school or college approach to mental health.
It's interactive, it's simple and it's free. The framework aligns with the eight principles outlined in the Department for Education and Public Health England’s whole-school approach guidance.
The 5 Steps will help you to take a considered approach to the mental health needs of pupils and staff, the importance of leadership, and the role of the community.
Any whole-school or college approach to mental health must also consider the principles of equity, diversity and inclusion, which are woven through the 5 Steps framework.
Use the free 5 Steps action planning tool to measure your progress against each step.
