(UK) "Schools must stop the rising tide of mental health problems in pupils "

Oct 25, 2017, (UK) TES: 'Our schools are drowning under a tidal wave of human misery' https://www.tes.com/news/school-news/breaking-views/our-schools-are-drowning-under-a-tidal-wave-human-misery In the face of this growing pressure, our community and local services are trying to rise to the challenge. We have created a network of more than 150 mental health champions from nearly every primary, secondary school and college, from every GP's surgery and from every third-sector provider. All of whom are supported by CAMHS staff, who have helped to provide mental health training and resources to support children, parents and staff. … We are told that schools must stop the rising tide of mental health problems in pupils and that we must do that while absorbing significant real-term cuts in funding.
