School Mental Health Promotion: Supporting Children Impacted by Family and Parent Mental Health Conditions
Stella Laletas and Liz Wrigley


Abstract

Given the high prevalence of children living with a parent who has a mental health condition, prevention and early intervention strategies have attracted much attention over the past decade. Given the role teachers and educators play in children’s academic and social development, the school context has gained much attention in mental health promotion research. There is a growing evidence of the effectiveness of school-based mental health programs to facilitate strategies that address some of the challenges associated with stigma and prejudice.
