Mental health problems are increasing. 1 in 10 of children aged 5-16 have a diagnosed mental health condition. We know that 50% of all mental health problems are established by the age of 14 and 75% by the age of 18 (Kessler et al 2007 & Young Minds 2019). The rationale for early intervention is strong.

The children’s responses were so positive- all noting substantial changes in their capacity to manage emotions. Wow! The strength and value in this, is having a whole school language for children to articulate their feelings. It is used across the school, in managing situations. Tracey M, Head Teacher
