Our mental health services in schools

Our mental health services in schools

When you become a Place2Be partner school, you'll benefit from a mixture of mental health and counselling services based on your school's individual needs.

At Place2Be, we offer the opportunity to become a Place2Be partner school. We offer our partner schools a range of mental health support services that contribute to a whole-school approach to mental health. This support can include in-school support, expert training, and resources.

We provide mental health support services in primary, secondary, high and all-through schools across England, Scotland and Wales. Support services are completely tailored to the individual needs of your school

Our in-school services

Our partner schools benefit from a dedicated Place2Be mental health professional who'll be an integral part of your school team. They'll work closely with pupils, families and staff to improve emotional wellbeing and provide mental health services for the whole school community.

Discover more about the mental health services you might be offered as a Place2Be partner school below, and learn more about our school community team and whole-school approach.

Please note that because our services are designed especially for your school, we might not be able to offer all of the services below. Our mental health services vary across regions.
