Place2Be is a children’s and young people’s mental health charity with almost 30 years’ experience working with pupils, families and staff in UK schools. They believe that no child or young person should have to face mental health problems alone. Their teams across the UK passionately support pupils in managing challenges in their lives. They make this happen by:

  • providing high-quality mental health services in schools, backed by research
  • building confidence and knowledge in schools to promote a better understanding of mental health and wellbeing
  • growing a mental health workforce that can support children and young people
  • raising awareness of children and young people’s mental health everywhere, from the government to the general public


Each school they work with has a dedicated Place2Be mental health professional who is integral to the school team.

They provide mental health support through one-to-one and group counselling. They work closely with pupils, families and staff to improve emotional wellbeing and provide mental health support for the whole school.
