Description

What if… we wanted our kids to be happier?


Blame has been laid at the door of many things – from neoliberalism, to social media, to excessive testing in schools. What's changed to impact on young people’s well-being to such an extent, and what can schools, parents and carers, and policy makers – do about it?

Are we doing enough, early on enough, to respond to modern day pressures – whether through mental health training for pupils or mental health first aid training for teachers? We've brought together a panel of experts to give us their views.

Speakers include:

  • Hannah Wilson, Executive Headteacher, Aureus School & Aureus Primary School.
  • Praveetha Patalay, Associate Professor, UCL Institute of Education & UCL Faculty of Population Health Sciences.
  • Caroline Hounsell, Director Community Development, MHFA England.
  • Patrick Johnston, Director of Learning, Place2Be.

Chair: Professor Becky Francis is the Director of UCL Institute of Education.
