Mental Health Trials Launched in Schools

To mark Children’s Mental Health Week (4-10 February), the government has announced that up to 370 schools in England will take part in a series of trials testing different approaches to supporting young people’s mental health.  Children will benefit from mindfulness exercises, relaxation techniques and breathing exercises to help them regulate their emotions, alongside pupil sessions with mental health experts. The study will run until 2021. More information about this can be read here.
