This is non-statutory, departmental advice from the Department for Education (DfE).

Mental health problems affect many people, and most schools will have pupils who need mental health support.

This advice aims to help schools to support pupils whose mental health problems manifest themselves in behaviour. Schools have an important role to play in supporting the mental health and wellbeing of children by developing whole school approaches tailored to their particular needs, as well as considering the needs of individual pupils.
