Teach mental health in primary schools, advisory group says

The Young Peoples Mental Health Advisory Group set up by the NHS’s clinical research network have advised that placing mental health on the national curriculum could be key to helping prevent mental health issues in later life.

The statistics say that around 1 in 10 children and young people have a mental health issue and studies have shown that there is a strong correlation between childhood and adolescent mental health difficulties and problems in adulthood.

The advisory group have come up with a number of ideas of how to incorporate mental health education into the national curriculum, in common with sex education.
