Description

Rt Hon Robert Halfon MP will host a lunch event on Tuesday 27th March 2018 on behalf of NatCen Social Research and the Education Policy Institute, in The Churchill Room, House of Commons, at 12:30pm, and requests the pleasure of your company.




Robert Halfon MP, the Education Policy Institute (EPI) and the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen) are delighted to invite you to discuss the future of mental health in schools.

The Prime Minister has said that mental health is one of the “greatest social challenges of our time”. The recent Green Paper on measures to improve mental health support for children and young people outlined the government’s proposed strategy, with schools set to play a central role.

A landmark report by NatCen, published last year, documented for the first time how schools and colleges are supporting mental wellbeing, and identifying and supporting pupils with mental health needs. The Department for Education commissioned this research to provide a basis for future policy and research, with many of the report’s findings providing evidence for proposals within the Green Paper.

At this lunchtime event you will hear from the Rt Hon Robert Halfon MP (Chair of the Education Select Committee) and report author Neil Smith (NatCen) before we finish with a panel discussion by sector experts, chaired by Natalie Perera (EPI).

Our panel includes Professor Leon Feinstein (Director of Evidence at Office of the Children's Commissioner), Lisa Harker (Director of The Art Room at Place2Be), Dr Pooky Knightsmith (Author and Vice Chair of Children and Young People’s Mental Health Coalition) and James Hollinsley (Author and Head of Longwood Primary Academy).
