Our champion Jade found this interesting article on the BBC News website today. Although we are happy with the idea that checks should be made, there is still a feeling that communities and families should have mental health awareness skills. Not only that but that these skills are culturally adapted to meet the needs of these communities. It is important that a screening tool does not become another tick box exercise and something that can meet the needs of both the children, families, teachers and wider society.
Have a read and let us know what you think.
