A £500,000 grant has been awarded to a new mental health project in Cumbria.
The development funding means that pupils in the area will take part in a pilot project in the new school year.
The local partnership will then use this to work up long term plans.
The funding comes from the Big Lottery Fund's £75m HeadStart programme which, with a focus on schools, aims to develop ways of dealing with mental health issues before they become deep-rooted problems.
