This paper overviewed some of the research that had already been conducted in schools to support student wellbeing and reported back on research that the author had conducted in her own school, evaluating an intervention that aimed to help Year 12 students cope better with stress. The results showed a small but significant improvement in students' ability to understand what makes them stressed and what they need to do to control their stress when life gets particularly difficult. The study also highlighted issues with introducing mental health interventions in schools.
