Meeting the Mental Health Needs of Learners 11-18 Years


By Jonathan Glazzard & Kate Bancroft

The mental health of children in secondary schools is a current concern.

  • Do you feel equipped to identify mental health needs in your learners?
  • Do you have the knowledge and understanding to adequately support them?
  • Do you understand where your responsibilities start and stop?

This book helps you address these questions and more, providing a range of evidence-based strategies and tools. It introduces the various risk factors involved, shows how you can build resilience in your students, and focuses on identifying and supporting both specific mental health needs and particular groups of learners.
