The interface between mental health and schools has become a major focus of policy and practice. School attendance is important and impacts a range of outcomes, from academic performance, to children and young people’s mental health. In this book, experts from the education and mental health sectors have collaborated to produce a practical guide to mental health and attendance at school that will be of interest to both researchers and practitioners across this inter-disciplinary field. The book covers topics such as the importance of a multidisciplinary approach, terminology and socio-political considerations, school attendance problems in relation to emotional, behavioural and neurodevelopmental disorders, special educational needs, school factors and influences and attendance of vulnerable children. Its aim is to offer practical advice and key information to practitioners from both clinical and educational sectors so that they can work more effectively to enable children and young people to thrive.
