The recent Green Paper Transforming Children and Young People’s Mental Health Provision contains much that should be lauded. The proposals include designating leads for mental health in schools, integrating mental health and wellbeing into the curriculum, and mental health awareness training for staff. Embedding psychological services in schools could potentially provide a destigmatised, de-medicalised way of supporting children’s mental health needs as they emerge. However, it is essential that the teachers at the forefront of these changes are not forgotten.
