Supporting Mental Health and Academic Learning in Schools
An Integrative Approach
Schools play a critical role in promoting the academic, behavioural, social and emotional development of children, a responsibility that is shared with families and the community. Some schools exclusively focus on the academic progress and excellence of students, while others are predominately concerned with students' psychological well-being. Supporting Mental Health and Academic Learning in Schools presents new and innovative models and strategies that target the whole child in order to ensure that academic development is promoted alongside well-being and mental health.
