dc.description.abstractAs the focus on mental health in schools has increased so too has the number of agencies providing services, talks and activities to support mental health promotion. While there is evidence to suggest that supporting community mental health through schools is beneficial there is little empirical evidence for many of the interventions on offer (Kelly, 2007). This study examined the effect of Jigsaw’s school intervention on attitudes to mental health, help-seeking and social distance in a secondary school in North Dublin. A questionnaire was completed over three time points. The intervention resulted in more positive attitudes to mental health and an increased awareness in sources of help. No effect was found on barriers to help seeking. There were mixed findings on social distance. Limitations of the current study and areas for research are discussed.
