Child mental health support - Scotland

Place2Be has offered child mental health support in Scotland since 2001 and currently reaches over 14,432 pupils and their families in 45 schools.

We offer a menu of different services to meet schools’ needs, including in-school mental health support, expert training and resources.

We build children and young people's resilience through talking, creative work and play. We also support parents and school staff and help schools to be mentally healthy. Read about our services

Many of our communities across Edinburgh, Glasgow, Ayrshire, South Lanarkshire, Renfrewshire and Dundee face poverty and complex needs. Search for Place2Be schools near you

For every £1 invested, our counselling service in UK primary schools has the potential to return £6.20 to society, according to a report by Pro Bono Economics. Read the report

Funding for our in-school service comes from a variety of sources including the Scottish Attainment Challenge, Pupil Equity Fund, Health Boards and Local Authority grants.

Place2Be has created a tangible feeling of calmness and kindness around the whole school. Now, weeks go by without incidents. Head Teacher, Glasgow
