KidsMatter Primary regularly develops and contributes to a range of publications. We want to promote all the great work schools are doing to support the mental health and wellbeing of their students.
These publications inform the general public and wider research community about the success of KidsMatter, and influence new mental health initiatives and services for children around the world.
