Mind’s inquiry in to mental health and secondary schools

January 6, 2021

Mind, the mental health charity, is asking young people about your experiences of secondary school and mental health.

The charity wants young people aged 13 to 25 years old or their parents/carers in England, to take this survey to help them find out about mental health and secondary schools.

The survey will take 10-15 minutes to complete. To have your say click here.

This is part of Educating Mental Health: Mind’s inquiry into mental health in schools and say they want to understand what’s working in schools and what needs to change.

If you’re a parent or guardian, you can fill in the survey about your child’s experiences.

Your answers will inform their recommendations on how to ensure children and young people at secondary school can get the support they need with their mental health.

Speak up!

Some of the issues they want to hear from you on are:

  • Mental health problems and students’ experience of school
  • The impact of coronavirus on children and young people’s mental health and learning
  • How to improve mental health support for children and young people attending secondary schools and the barriers to achieving this
  • The relationship between schools and mental health services.

If you would like to take part in an interview (which will last no more than an hour) then please email David Stephenson at d.stephenson@mind.org.uk.
