Mental Health Matters - A practical guide to identifying and understanding mental health issues in primary schools

A practical guide to help schools to identify early indicators of mental health difficulties in young children.

Teachers have a responsibility to support the mental health of children in their care. Current statistics show a significant rise in mental health difficulties in children and young people, and new legislation urges schools to consider whether continuing disruptive behaviour might be the result of an unmet need. However, this is not an area that is universally addressed in teacher training programmes or books.

Using real life case studies, this book supports all teachers and school staff in understanding and identifying the early signs of mental health difficulties, and explains how to bring about appropriate early interventions.
