This guide for teachers sets out the context in which young black men are growing up, and highlights the ways teachers and the school system can help them to thrive in school. The short guide covers the need for changes to the school culture, the building of relationships and for greater opportunities outside of school.

The guide was created as part of the Shifting the Dial programme, a partnership between Centre for Mental Health, First Class Legacy, Birmingham Repertory Theatre and Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Trust.
