About the eBook

′A clearly written, well-structured and practical account of how to help and support children and young people with mental health problems, and those at risk of developing such problems... The book concludes with an excellent listing of organisations and resources′ - SENCO Update

′A highly practical and impressive book... I like the short introductions and the concise summing up within each chapter... The book is suitable for teachers as well as counsellors and outside agencies involved in school referral work... deserves to be widely read and to have its ideas put into practice′ - Therapy Today

′I feel the book should be compulsory reading for everyone who works with young people, but especially pastoral heads and senior teachers with responsibilities in this area′ - Janine Phillips, Class Teacher
