Good mental health is vital in allowing young people to learn, build resilience and develop the skills they need to grow into well-rounded, healthy adults.
Making the grade (one of a series of reports produced for The Health Foundation’s Young People’s Future Health Inquiry and produced with the Centre for Mental Health) highlights the profound effects that educational settings can have on young people’s mental health and wellbeing.
Schools, colleges, universities and other educational establishments are often the first port of call for young people and families in need of help and advice. With children and young people’s mental health services increasingly overstrained, young people may also now have little choice but to turn to other professionals to talk about their mental health problems.
