This one day conference brings together high-profile experts from various disciplines and young people who have experienced mental health problems themselves to offer the latest evidence-based advice on how to address mental health in schools, and the best methods to achieve this. Given the vast number of policy initiatives and programmes being developed for use in schools, it is critical that schools know what they should be doing on the basis of the research evidence and where funding should be directed.
This not-for-profit conference is aimed at key authority figures in schools, commissioners, policy makers and researchers nationally.
The conference will involve keynote addresses, as well as poster presentations and opportunities to meet and talk to other professionals working in this area.
