Mental Health Today Update

Welcome to your Mental Health Today update

In the past week, a report has called for schools to teach pupils about mental health alongside traditional subjects. We also highlight a book from Pavilion and an upcoming conference.

  1. Schools should be able to teach children and young people about mental health in the same way they are taught about literacy or numeracy, a report has recommended.
    Read the full story.

  2. Being prescribed non-medical treatments, such as sports groups or cookery courses, by their doctors is benefitting people with mental health conditions, a pilot has found.
    Read the full story.

  3. More than a quarter (28%) of men said they had not sought medical help for the last mental health problem they experienced compared to 19% of women, a survey has found.
    Read the full story.

  4. Out now from Pavilion: She’ll be Alright. This is a story-based approach to exploring issues of hidden neglect in care homes. This training and self-study guide has a main focus on dementia care, and will benefit trainers, care managers or those undertaking health and social care certificates.
    Order your copy now for the reduced price of £15.95.

  5. MHT is proud to support the Learning Disability Today conference on Tuesday 29 November in London. The event is one month away and tickets have been going fast! The programme will focus on topics that are important to people with learning disabilities, their carers and the professionals who support them.
    Make sure you book your place today.

Don’t forget to check out the Mental Health Today website@mhtodaymag on Twitter and our Facebook page throughout the week for the latest news.

Dan Parton and the Mental Health Today team
