Campaign: To help teachers provide better support for pupils with mental health conditions

My team and I have seen young people struggle with mental health issues.

For many, it can be a difficult thing to talk about, and it often goes unnoticed.

But one thing that could help is better support and understanding in schools.

With Fixers, we’ve helped create a film to show teachers how to spot when a young person could have a mental health condition.

We hope this will encourage pupils to feel more comfortable talking about their emotions and ultimately enable them to get the help they need.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:

Niamh Phillips Natalie Machale
Jack Wilkins Tye Merrill
Sara Levingston Emma Gould
Megan Gearing Levin Harris-Thomas
