Mental Health and Well-being Policy for Schools and Colleges - example policy and guidance

This guidance was written by Dr Pooky Knightsmith who is the Director of CWMT's Schools and Young People programme. The guidance was developed in consultation with a range of school staff and other professionals and experts.

Included in this document are example policies, lists of useful sources of information, plus advice from the Department for Education and Public Health, and on disclosures and CAMHS referrals.

This policy forms part of the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust’s ongoing work to improve recognition of and support for mental health issues. The Trust provides funded training to schools and other organisations on a variety of topics related to mental health including twilight, half day and full day INSET sessions.
