Schools should form closer links with social
services and child and adolescent mental health services, says the
Mental Health Foundation.
The charity recommends that government, local
education authorities and schools make mental health a priority and
that every secondary school carries out a mental health audit.
The MHF has launched a pack with guidance on
initiating a whole-school approach to mental health.
