    Expertise from the two previously separate disciplines of education and mental health is combined in this book to examine the complex problems associated with today's high-stress, high-emotion learning and teaching environments - affecting learners and leaders of learning. Students of all ages have increasingly diverse capabilities and diagnosable mental health disorders; over-worked teachers face a constant stream of classroom, curriculum and organisational challenges; the under-resourced institution heads try to balance the needs of their students and their staff with their own with those of the education system. This book shows that collaboration between these experts is necessary to bring about top-down and bottom-up improvements in our schools and colleges, to foster healthy environments in which everyone can thrive and thus reduce the burden on our health and education systems - and society as a whole.
