New Advertiser campaign calls for more mental health help in our schools
THE Advertiser is today launching a “Class Action” against failing mental health in schools – demanding more help for students and teachers.
Our campaign comes after a survey by MP John Healey found more students and teachers are suffering mental health problems.
Mr Healey wants to see counsellors appointed in every school and shorter waiting times for those needing help – both of which the Advertiser is backing.
Budget cash for pupils’ mental health “well short of what is needed,” says MP
AN MP backing the Advertiser’s campaign to tackle stress and anxiety in schools has called a government budget bonus for mental health “well short of what experts say is needed”.
John Healey, MP for Wentworth and Dearne, said he feared that extra funding promised by the Chancellor this week would come “too late” for many children.
Last week, the Advertiser launched its “Class Action” campaign against failing mental health in schools – demanding more help for students and teachers.
