School is fundamental for a young person’s socialisation and academic development, but are the settings succeeding in helping young people flourish, find their self-worth and discover their skills and talents? Safeguarding, equal opportunities, bullying awareness, vulnerability warnings and many other policies are in place within schools to ensure a healthy and safe educational environment for young adults and children. However, what is being done to ensure a healthy and safe mental environment? With mental health problems on the rise and educational stress and pressure increasing more than ever before, is there a correlation? Is there enough support for those between the ages of 4-18? What are teachers being told to look out for? What systems exist that try to tackle ongoing issues for young people? Join Meanha, Jamilla and Sara as they discuss these issues and tell us what you decide.
