Mental Health in Schools – Testimony of a Child

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.

Dazed and confused much of the time but convinced we can, as a species, do much better than this if we set our minds to being much more positive and productive towards our fellow humans.
