On 4 December 2017, the DfE and Department of Health released ‘Transforming Children and Young People’s Mental Health Provision: a Green Paper’ which outlines what the government wants to do to help children and young people with their mental health.

According to the Green Paper, 1 in 10 young people have some form of diagnosable mental health condition. Core proposal 1: A Designated Senior Lead for mental health in every school.
The government wants every school to have a designated senior lead for mental health by 2025.

The mental health lead will be a trained member of staff who is responsible for the school’s approach to mental health.

The programme will enable you to become a mentally healthy school.
