Hub4Leaders partnered with The Carnegie Centre of Excellence for Mental Health in Schools at Leeds Beckett University to conduct a national survey into mental health provision for pupils in the UK.

DfE commissioned this study to further understanding of the extent that current content of schools' published policies and other information demonstrates relevant approaches and activities.

It is crucial for schools to be able to identify early all children with social, emotional, behavioural and/or mental health needs, so adapted support can be provided before children reach crisis point.
