Feel Happy At School

 

 

Three pupils in every classroom have a diagnosable mental health condition, which could affect their ability to engage and perform at school.


A number experience bullying, some struggle with the stress of exams and others try to progress with their education while coping with depression, an eating disorder or self-harm.


As part of The Feel Happy Fix Live, 16 to 25-year-olds from across the UK are identifying the biggest issues to affect young people’s happiness at school, before proposing practical solutions to make change for the better.
