Abstract

Mental health problems in young people are increasing, with one in ten in the UK now experiencing a diagnosable mental health problem. A growing body of evidence suggests that school-based counselling services may make a significant contribution to the amelioration of such difficulties (see Cooper, 2004; 2006), but this has yet to be evaluated through the 'gold standard' of empirical inquiry: the randomised controlled trial (RCT). This paper presents a report on the first stages of the development of a pilot for such an RCT.
