Emotional Health in Schools

Emotional Health in Schools: From Science to Practice

Schools have a unique and important role to play in the prevention of emotional disorders in children and adolescents. School mental health staff are strategically placed to deliver services and programs that can change the trajectory of at-risk young people. Over the past decade there has been a burgeoning of research into ‘what works’ in emotional health prevention programs in schools. This important conference, co-hosted by the Centre for Emotional Health at Macquarie University and the Australian Psychological Society’s Psychologists in Schools Interest Group, presents the latest research on emotional health prevention and intervention, with a specific focus on implementation in the school context.
