This interactive discussion will showcase recent action research in developing mental health practice in a primary school. It will look at how a group of school staff came together with educational psychology child and adolescent mental health services to develop a shared understanding of how a school best supports the mental health of their staff and students and how mental health becomes ‘everybody’s business’.

Such whole school approaches are advocated across legislation, guidance and policy as integral to create long-lasting positive change for school mental health. Drawing on the experiences and expertise of the audience, we will engage and debate the utility, challenges and opportunities presented by whole school approaches to mental health and explore the barriers and facilitators to implementing a whole school mental health approach. The event is an ideal opportunity for attendees to feed forward and inform directions for future research and dissemination of practice in this area.
