Mental health and emotional issues often develop during school years. Around 50% of young adults with mental health issues have symptoms by the age of 15, with this number reaching nearly 75% by their late teens.
Evidence indicates that mental health problems in children may be increasing, and that a significant number of children and young people do not get the help they need at the time they need it, in part due to lack of understanding from the adults around them. For those aged 5-19 years, suicide is the second most common cause of death (ONS, 2015).
The government’s green paper "Transforming Children and Young People's Mental Health Provision" has placed schools at the centre of national policy for supporting and maintaining mental health of children, for providing early identification and help to those in need.
