Schools play a critical role in promoting the academic, behavioural, social and emotional development of children, a responsibility that is shared with families and the community. Some schools exclusively focus on the academic progress and excellence of students, while others are predominately concerned with students' psychological well-being. Supporting Mental Health and Academic Learning in Schools presents new and innovative models and strategies that target the whole child in order to ensure that academic development is promoted alongside well-being and mental health. Drawing on survey and interview data collected from school communities in North America, Europe and Australia, this book expands upon already established evidence-based models and approaches, as well as developing new ones. Additionally, various case studies are presented that detail school staff experiences of promoting young people's mental health and wellbeing. This book is unique because it not only considers those formal programs that actively promote mental health and social well-being in the school community, but also demonstrates how everyday classroom practices and the curriculum might implicitly impact on young people in positive, but also potentially adverse, ways. This book examines, in detail, the different models, approaches and strategies that should enable teachers, school counsellors and school leaders to meet the various psycho-social needs of young people. As a result, the book should be essential reading for academics, researchers and postgraduates in the fields of mental health, education and developmental and educational psychology. It should also be of great interest to teachers, school counsellors and psychologists and school leaders.
