School Psychology and Mental Health Interventions in the United Kingdom: Educating Education in Mental Health

pp. 807—815

Abstract: The roots of educational psychology can be traced back to mental health. Some recent national and government publications have focused attention upon mental health services for children and adolescents. This article assesses the evidence for educational psychologists’ involvement in mental health services and evaluates the extent of the knowledge base shown in the professional literature. The article concludes that the profession cannot claim competencies that it does not possess without further training and education if it wishes to be recognized as a provider of mental health services.
