Mental health in schools, whether that of staff or students, cannot be addressed as a topic apart. It is not something that can be addressed by a scheme of learning nor by some drop-down days or INSETs nor even by increased access for staff and students to counsellors or mental health practitioners (welcome as that may be). Further, we cannot address student mental health in isolation from staff mental health.
In order to make any kind of strides forward, we need to change the culture of school which means fundamentally challenging and changing some of our entrenched mindsets, assumptions, and blindspots about human beings and how to go about education. This means recognising the role that every single staff member plays in creating classroom environments and school cultures that enable young people to grow and thrive physically, socially, academically, creatively, and psychologically; and the role that every single leader plays in creating a team culture in schools that enable all staff to grow and thrive physically, socially, academically, creatively and psychologically.
