Description:

This paper discusses the protective factors and risks that impact on children's mental health and how they will carry on having an effect throughout the children's lives. It considers the cumulative effect of the things schools are doing to promote or demote mental health development - with children and their families and looks at the importance of these moves.

From the Paper:

"An emphasis on mental health promotion through programs such as Multisystemic Therapies (MST) and The Incredible Years is challenging as it involves a major change in the way most agencies that work with children will have to operate. It will require a shared understanding and vision of what mental health promotion actually is, and what it can deliver in the long run for society as a whole. There is a strong case for the reciprocal relationship between schools, families, communities, and long term negative outcomes (Walker & Sprague 1999). The protective factors and risks that impact on children's mental health will carry on having an affect throughout their lives. So it is important to consider the cumulative effect of the things schools are doing to promote or demote mental health development - with children and their families."
