About this course

10% of children and young people (aged 5-16 years) have a clinically diagnosable mental problem, yet 70% of children and adolescents who experience mental health problems have not had appropriate interventions at a sufficiently early age (Mental Health Foundation).

Amendments to the Education Act 2002 - Mental Health & Wellbeing

A bill is currently going through parliament that would see the Education Act 2002 and the Academies Act 2010 amended. In short, the amendment would mean that schools, colleges, and universities would have a responsibility to:

(a) promote pupil mental health;

(b) support mental ill-health;

(c) make statements of policy in relation to their promotion of pupil mental health, and prevention and support for mental ill-health;

(d) promote training and information for school staff on the subject of mental health;

You can view the bill and its progress here.
