Mental health among pupils

A blog post image

With mental health of pupils being of concern to many school leaders, we recently conducted a survey of our members on this topic. Thank you to everyone who took part in this - our surveys help raise awareness of the issues that school leaders are facing. The full survey report is available here.

The results offer a valuable insight into how frequently school leaders encounter mental health issues amongst their pupils, and the long time it takes for referrals to be progressed by CAMHS.

You may have already seen that the results of the survey made the national headlines on the BBC and in the Times Education Supplement. Our senior researcher Amy has also written a post for Key insights, which you can read here.
