Recently Published Issues
This Virtual Issue brings together some of the most influential articles published on child and adolescent mental health in schools over the last 10 years. Some articles provide empirical studies of significant school programmes which aim at promoting mental health, others explore the social and cultural contexts that shape mental health in schools including poverty and disadvantage, and some identify the principles that need to drive this work. The articles particularly reflect the emergence of two key issues in recent years, namely the central importance to mental health of a respectful and warm school ethos, and the need for effective implementation, balancing top down programme fidelity with the bottom up engagement of the communities. This collection of articles and the accompanying editorial will be of interest to all such communities: young people, school staff, the wider school community including parents and CAMHS professionals, and education policy makers.
