Stigma in schools
9th December 2012 ... CharlotteIf teachers knew more about pupils mental pain they could stop the hell I endured
This article printed today raises the important subject of emotional wellbeing in schools. It calls for more support for the one in ten young people suffering with mental illness whilst also raising awareness of those who do not have a diagnosable condition. The article highlights the effect that mental health stigma can have on young people and the important role that schools can play in tackling this. However in order to do this the article recommends that more training is needed for teachers in order for them to feel better supported in this area.
This article gives a very good argument for supporting emotional wellbeing in schools. Nevertheless I can't help think that something more is needed to get schools on board. From my conversations with schools the feedback I get is that their actions are dictated by the requirements of Ofsted. To get schools supporting emotional wellbeing we need Ofsted to start promoting its importance. AcSEED has contacted Ofsted to enquire about their stance on emotional wellbeing and we are awaiting their response.
