5 Steps to Mental Health and Wellbeing

Supporting good mental health is a vital part of helping children and young people thrive.

The Anna Freud centre has produced a simple evidence based framework called 5 steps to mental health and wellbeing.

This framework is developed by mental health experts and teachers, for teachers.

It's interactive, it's simple and it's free. It will help you to support staff, lead change, and engage with parents, carers and the community so that you can meet your pupils' and students' needs.

By registering, you can move through the steps, in any order, at your own pace and update a personalised action planning tool that can be regularly reviewed.

Read the user guide for more information on how to use the framework.
