I found this, posted by Dr Pooky Knightsmith Hesmondhalgh on LinkedIn, to be a very moving testimony about dealing with mental health issues in a school setting.

I think much more needs to be done to support those with mental health issues in adolescence, and raising awareness is the vital first step in dealing with this terrible problem.
