How educators and mental health practitioners can work together | RFTRW: S10E03

28 June 2021

As the mental health of young people continues to be a very pressing issue, we hear about support teams being placed in schools to address pupils’ needs. Can the same be rolled out more widely across the education sector?

Vivian introduces a feasibility study involving colleagues from the IOE, other UCL faculties and the Anna Freud Centre mental health charity looking into the implementation of Mental Health Support Teams in Further Education institutions.

We also hear about how the IOE’s professional training doctorate in Educational Psychology is unique in its approach to developing research skills and professional practice, through partnerships with the Health and Care Professions Council and British Psychological Society, and placements in local authority areas. To what extent can interdisciplinary collaborations make similar initiatives possible?
