Abstract

In England it was estimated that 1 in 8 (13%) 5 to 19 year olds in 2017 were living with a diagnosable mental health disorder, which typically persist into adulthood. The Green Paper (2017) on Transforming Children and Young People’s Mental Health Provision focused on piloting early intervention and prevention approaches in the context of schools and colleges. A key aspect of this preventative approach is the rollout of the ‘Trailblazer’ programme which, by taking a ‘whole school approach’ (WSA) to mental health, embeds clinicians into schools and colleges to improve mental health awareness and treatment of mild to moderate mental health disorders, including providing help to school staff, signposting and delivery of focused evidence-based interventions
