Kendal, Sarah, Callery, Peter and Keeley, Philip (2011) The feasibility and acceptability of an approach to emotional wellbeing support for high school students. Child and Adolescent Mental Health, 16 (4). pp. 193-200. ISSN 1475-357XMetadata only available from this repository.
Background: Emotional wellbeing of young people has high global and national priority. UK high schools are under pressure to address this but lack evidence-based guidelines.
Method: Students (N=23) (aged 11–16 years) and staff (N=27) from three urban UK high schools participated in qualitative interviews to explore the feasibility and acceptability of an approach to emotional wellbeing support. Key components were: self-referral, guided self-help, and delivery by school pastoral and support staff.
Findings: Confidentiality, emotional support, effectiveness and delivery modes were important to students. Organisational values influenced feasibility.
Conclusions: Understanding a school’s moral and operational framework can enhance the development of suitable emotional wellbeing support.
