A toolkit for schools and colleges

This toolkit provides guidance on ‘measuring and monitoring children and young people’s mental wellbeing’.

It discusses what is meant by mental wellbeing, how schools can influence mental health, and why it’s important to measure it in schools. Three aspects of measurement are explored: (1) taking a snapshot, for example, of pupil wellbeing (assessing), (2) identifying, for example, pupils that might need more individual or specialised support, and (3) evaluating the impact of early support and targeted interventions. A broad range of positive mental health and wellbeing instruments are introduced and discussed.
