Mental health will become a mandatory part of primary and secondary school education in England and Wales from September 2020.

This moment represents an opportunity to provide schoolchildren with the mental health literacy, knowledge and awareness of support channels many of us never had / have yet to have.

But it could yet end up as an exercise in entrenching a sense that the responsibility for a pupil (or their friend or family member) developing good mental health rests solely with the child themselves. Together we can change that.
