This guide is for any member of school staff who is concerned about a child or young person’s mental health and wellbeing. We have based its contents on research undertaken in the UK, but we hope it will also be of use to an international readership. Our work has a strong focus on thinking about and addressing mental health and wellbeing from an inequalities perspective. We suggest ways in which practitioners might join with young people facing particularly difficult challenges to try to disrupt, ‘nudge’ or even radically transform some of the larger social systems, so that they better support their needs (Hart & Aumann, 2017).
