The Mental Health Foundation is supporting the dissemination of this toolkit produced by the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust. It is written for generalist practitioners who are not mental health specialists, working in universal services; this includes

  • GPs
  • health visitors
  • school nurses
  • teachers 
  • social workers 
  • youth justice workers
  • voluntary agencies
  • with an emphasis on school nurses.

It is for practitioners who are able to offer general advice and treatment for young people’s less severe problems, contribute towards mental health promotion, identify problems early, and refer to more specialist services.
