Change is complex. Establishing a whole or school college approach to mental health is a major transformational task. Yet increasingly this is what schools are expected to deliver. The rewards are clear. Research shows what teachers already know: happier children do better and have higher attendance rates than those whose problems are unresolved.

So how do you go about it? The Anna Freud Centre has launched its 5 Steps to Mental Health and Wellbeing Framework, a simple, free and interactive tool to help schools and college develop a whole setting approach on their own terms.

We will be holding five seminars throughout the year based on each of the steps: Leading change, Working together, Understanding need, Promoting wellbeing and Supporting staff.
