Mental health and behaviour in schools

How schools can support pupils whose mental health problems manifest themselves in behaviour. This guidance is for school staff and applies to all schools.

It gives advice on:

  • how to create a whole school culture, including promoting positive mental health
  • understanding the link between mental health and behaviour
  • how to identify children with possible mental health problems
  • where and how to put in place support, including working with external agencies where required

It also provides links to sources of further support and guidance.

The intervention and support guidance may also be useful for colleges and other post-16 institutions
