Place 2Be provides emotional and therapeutic services in primary and secondary schools, building children's resilience through talking, creative work and play. Founded in 1994, Place2Be currently has school-based teams in 294 schools in the UK, supporting over 142,000 children.

Place2Be works in schools providing early intervention mental health support. It effectively removes the emotional barriers to learning and prevents the downward spiral that can lead to low aspirations, poor educational achievement, truancy and exclusion from school. It helps improve children’s classroom learning and academic progress and builds their resilience, providing them with brighter prospects and hopeful futures. Because it is an integrated school-based service supporting children, parents, teachers and school staff, Place2Be becomes a trusted part of the school and the wider community. Its core services are delivered by its clinical staff and highly skilled Volunteer Counsellors. 

Place2Be offers consultancy support, advice and workplace learning to teachers and school staff. It is a leading provider of specialist training and university-validated professional qualifications to those who work clinically with children, helping to build capacity in local communities.
