Schools have a vital role in helping children develop
the capabilities to lead happy lives
Recent decades have seen big increases in the proportion of
young people with emotional and behavioural issues. Mental health
problems are increasingly prevalent, with 20% of children
experiencing such issues each year. These problems affect other
areas of a child's life and also increase the likelihood of mental
health difficulties later on in adult life.
Schools experience the day-to-day reality of these issues but
are also vital in combating them and promoting good emotional
health. Our vision is for a movement of schools placing happiness
and well-being at the heart of their ethos and culture, and
proactively sharing their approaches with others.
