In the UK today, six children and young people (CYP) in every classroom have a diagnosable mental health problem, most of whom will not seek help for up to ten years. There is a growing awareness that earlier preventative support that focuses on building resilience and promoting well-being is necessary to meet our young people’s mental health needs.
