The Cool School programme is an Anti-Bullying initiative for Post-Primary schools developed within the HSE Dublin North East's Child Psychiatric Service. It is an Anti-Bullying programme and support service targeted at second level schools and specifically tailored to the Irish context. It is supported by assistance from the HSE Dublin North East Health promotion Unit, and the In-Career development service of the Department of Education and Science.
A Multi-disciplinary team is engaged in this work, comprising a Consultant Psychiatrist, a Principal Social Worker, a Research Psychologist, two teachers on full-time secondment, a therapist and a computer assessment developer.
