This booklet aims to provide a resource for school staff interested in developing sustainable in-school support for pupils with mental health problems, in particular depression. It sets out the policy context, the research field concerning school-based approaches, and practice learning or local context. It draws on the experience of a range of schools which worked with the authors in considering how they had developed ways of supporting the mental health and well-being of their pupils. It includes a summary of current government policy as it relates to schools, an overview of the different mental health disorders that can affect children and young people, a review of some key research findings about what works in school-based approaches, and looks at what leadership and the local context might encompass in schools, including managing multi-agency working to promote the mental health and emotional well-being of pupils. It provides information about some of the local planning and commissioning structures that schools can use in developing services for their pupils, and describes outcomes monitoring tools and information about resources about mental health available on the internet.

Minority voices: research into the access and acceptability of services for the mental health of young people from black and minority ethnic groups

This research focuses on exploring the awareness and experiences of young people from Black and minority ethnic groups in using child and adolescent mental health services. A particular aim was to look at the barriers preventing these young people from accessing help. Data was gathered from an in-depth study in four sample areas of services for the mental health of Black and minority ethnic young people, and included focus groups and individual interviews with young people. Key findings revealed a very mixed picture of activity, suggesting that some parts of the country are quite active in developing services for young people from Black and minority ethnic groups - and of forging links with community services - whereas others have little or no specific provision. Also, a wide range of concerns about existing mental health service provision and problems in accessing services was reported by both young people and staff alike. The report is aimed at policy-makers, service commissioners and those working with young people from Black and minority ethnic communities.

The two-year QUEST study was undertaken by the charity Rethink, the Institute of Psychiatry and Sutton and Merton Primary Care Trust (PCT), and informed by a UK wide survey of school nurses which explored their training needs. QUEST aimed to develop a multifaceted training resource about depression for school nurses in secondary schools and to examine how the intervention could enhance their knowledge and skills. In QUEST, groups of school nurses from 13 PCTs in London were offered a full day of training with a half day top up session with an experienced trainer in child and adolescent mental health and input from a young service user, using materials developed in consultation with young people and organisations working in the field. The impact of the training was analysed using a range of research tools. Findings from the study indicated that the training was successful in enhancing the knowledge of participants and increasing the nurses' professional confidence to work with young people with depression, that school nurses have limited time available to support pupils and many remain quite isolated from their local specialist child and adolescent mental health services, that there is a need to offer support and training about children and young people's mental health to staff in schools to enable early intervention and accessible mental health support, and that school nurses have a key role to play.
