Mental Health and Wellbeing through Schools brings together international experts from various disciplines to identify and address a range of current challenges in this rapidly-developing field of endeavour. The opening chapter details lessons learned from research and practice, outlining some emerging challenges for the effective implementation of mental health initiatives in schools. Subsequent chapters take up the various issues, exploring problems and proposing solutions. Topics fall within four broad areas: Organisational and leadership issues such as dealing with 'wicked' or ‘hard-to-tame’ (complex and resistant) problems and taking a broad public health approach; Teacher-related issues, such as how to integrate programs successfully into schools, and teacher skills and professional learning; The challenges and opportunities of new technologies, including cyberbullying and the use of online, multimedia and mobile resources for both student and teacher learning and support; The need for a greater focus on targeted interventions for at-risk students, such as those with disabilities; also addressing ‘hard-to-tame’ problems such as bullying, youth suicide and depression. Mental Health and Wellbeing through Schools will be of interest to those involved in researching, developing, evaluating and implementing mental health initiatives in schools, including academics, practitioners, educators and educational and Mental Health policy makers. It will also be of use to professionals, such as nurses and social workers, concerned with the wellbeing of children and adolescents.

This practical guide, written by experts in mental health nursing, is designed to support healthcare practitioners in checking the physical health of people with severe mental illness (SMI). As life expectancy is reduced by 12 to 19 years in people with SMI, this patient group should receive a physical health check at least once a year. Yet many mental health practitioners have not been trained to assess their physical health needs, and even when such training is offered it may be difficult to access it because of clinical workloads. The Health Improvement Profile (HIP) provides an efficient, effective, evidence- based physical health check tool specifically designed to be used when assessing people with SMI. It supports practitioners in identifying physical health problems and guides them towards evidence-based interventions to address common health issues affecting people with SMI, ranging from cardiovascular disease to lifestyle factors such as diet, alcohol and smoking. Contents include: Introduction What is severe mental illness? What treatments are used in severe mental illness? Systems of the body that are commonly affected in people with severe mental illness Common physical comorbidities in people with severe mental illness Cardiovascular disease in people with severe mental illness Problematic behaviours affecting health in people with severe mental illness How to use the Health Improvement Profile (physical health check tool) Changing behaviour to improve health Appendix 1: Health Improvement Profile (HIP) – Female Appendix 2: Health Improvement Profile (HIP) – Male

What causes a person to flourish or languish? Or to be well or ill? How can the mental health and well-being of society as a whole, and individuals, be promoted and enhanced? This book explores the social, economic, political, cultural and environmental factors that affect mental health and well-being on a societal and individual level, and how prevention and intervention can enhance mental health. Taking a holistic approach to mental health, the book sets out effective strategies, from creating a supportive environment to building personal skills. Three extended case studies demonstrate how principles can be applied in practice in different situations: a specific social problem (suicide); a population group (young Black and minority ethnic groups); and a medically defined problem (people with long term conditions). The book is a vital resource for strategic planners (including commissioners) working to promote mental health and wellbeing at a population level, as well as operational services delivering to specific individuals and groups. It addresses the role of generic service providers as well as being essential reading for mental health and public health students.
