The Minds Ahead Hub for School Mental Health

3. Take Action: Resources for Your School or College

The resources here are designed to support schools and colleges to implement aspects of an effective Whole School Approach to school mental health. 

It is important to remember, however, that these are starting points - enabling teachers and leaders to take action now - and not a replacement for a full strategic process to put mental health and wellbeing at the centre of school or college life.
