This guide is strongly research-informed, with the reader benefiting from Vi’s wide reading and depth of understanding of the subject.  The highly practical nature of the book is reflected in the many helpful resources and references included throughout, and the reader is drawn in and engaged by the opportunities for personal reflection at the end of every section.

I strongly recommend this highly readable, succinct and measured exploration of student mental health for all who are committed to ensuring that we do what we can to support students, and staff, to thrive in our schools.
