Mental health in schools: trial

The Education Secretary Damian Hinds has announced that up to 370 schools will be part of a trial to test different ways of supporting children's mental health. Running up to 2021, the approaches will include:

  • Two approaches focused on increasing awareness in secondary schools through short information sessions either led by a specialist instructor or by trained teachers. These include a set of tools to increase understanding of mental health and mental disorders among both pupils and teachers.
  • Three approaches in primary and secondary schools that focus on lighter-touch approaches such as exercises drawn from mindfulness practice, breathing exercises and muscle relaxation techniques and recognising the importance of support networks including among their own peers.
