Addresses the issues of mental health promotion in schools within a health promoting schools approach as a framework. Mental health is interpreted holistically and as closely related to the psychosocial environment and organisational structures of schools. Identifies the social environment, and in particular student participation, as a key consideration. Mental health projects in Australia and Macedonia are presented. Despite the very diverse political and educational contexts of these two countries, it has proved possible to identify common themes, and these are explored: they include the importance of opportunities for genuine student participation, teacher‐student relationships, curricula for mental health and ways of connecting students to school.
