Expert advice videos

Over 50% of mental illnesses start before the age of 14 and 1 in 10 children and young people has a mental health disorder.  Schools are on the frontline when it comes to supporting children and young people's mental wellbeing.  Staff working in schools are ideally placed to recognise and respond to early signs of mental health difficulties in children and young people.  The below series of films, featuring some of the Centre's child mental health experts, aim to provide help and guidance to teachers on a range of issues including low mood, anxiety and self-harm.

These are the first in a series of videos the Schools in Mind network will be releasing to support teachers.  To keep informed of future releases, please join the School in Mind network for free here.
