counsellors should be situated in educational institutions to support young people suffering from mental health problems. mental health should be apart of educational curriculum, I think if teachers where trained in mental health and discussed it in lessons it would decrease suicidal rates, self harm and isolation. this would also severely decrease the stigma behind mental health. mental health services are not always available and there should be more places for individuals to go regarding mental health. suicide in the under 25s increased by 23.7%, reaching 730 deaths in 2018. if mental health was addressed and supported in our community we could decrease the number of individuals community suicide. we would be saving lives.
