Abstract

This briefing provides headline details from the BPS on children and young people’s mental health in schools and colleges.

As part of this briefing, the BPS is calling for:

  • increased access to support from applied psychologists, to ensure that a fully rounded understanding of pupils’ needs and required interventions is available to all schools
  • a combined approach to mental health support to be a focus for all schools
  • for children and young people identified as being particularly vulnerable to be prioritised for improved access to CAMHS and given a specific focus in the forthcoming Government green paper
