“1 in 10 children and young people suffer from a diagnosable mental health disorder – that is around three in every class”. Young Minds, 2009
10% of students in every school are currently battling with clinically defined mental health difficulties and yet Ofsted have reported that most secondary schools are failing these students. Have you identified all the students in your school that are struggling with mental health difficulties? What strategies have you put in place to support these students and raise awareness amongst their peers?
Under identification of students with mental health difficulties is a major problem in secondary schools. The Promoting Mental Health in Schools conference has been specifically designed to provide you with the tools to recognise students with a mental health difficulty, provide them with the right level of support and raise awareness of mental health difficulties throughout your school.
