Writing a Mental Health and Wellbeing Policy for Schools 

Did you know that one in six children of school age now has a diagnosable mental health problem?

It is imperative that schools develop and implement mental health policies and procedures to promote a safe environment for students.

These documents are designed to help schools to develop policies and procedures to empower staff to:

  • Spot the warning signs of mental ill health.
  • Support students in need of help.
  • Follow appropriate referral pathways and procedures.

A well-developed and effectively implemented policy can prevent students from falling through the gaps.

The template and further information documents are customisable for each school.

The full pack contains a zipped folder. Use the ‘Download your pack here’ button to the left where you will be asked to fill in a form and the pack will be emailed to you.
