The Duchess of Cambridge visits Lavender Primary School to mark Place2Be’s Children’s Mental Health Week

​Mentally Healthy Schools is a website that brings together information, advice and resources to help primary schools understand and promote children’s mental health and wellbeing.

It was launched by the Duchess of Cambridge as a legacy of the Heads Together Campaign, and has been compiled by mental health experts from the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, Place2Be and YoungMinds, working in partnership with The Royal Foundation.

The aim is to increase staff awareness, knowledge and confidence to help support pupils. It contains more than 600 resources, including teaching resources, advice about risks and protective factors, and whole-school advice for senior leaders.

Last month, the Duchess of Cambridge, pictured, attended the Royal Foundation’s Mental Health in Education conference and met with headteachers who are using the Mentally Healthy Schools programme.

She is pictured above visiting Lavender Primary School to mark Place2Be’s Children’s Mental Health Week last month.
