Nine To Noon for Tuesday 2 May 2017
09:05 'We need help with students' mental health' - School principals
Secondary school principals say it's frustrating that new research proves the benefits of good health services in schools, but too few schools are able to provide them. Yesterday on Nine to Noon we spoke with Auckland University associate professor Simon Denny, on his analysis of data from the Youth 2012 Survey of about 8500 teenagers. It found that teen suicide attempts and depression drops by two thirds in schools with good, multi-disciplinary health services - but only one in 10 has that level of resourcing. Kathryn talks to the chair of the PPTA Secondary Principals' Council, James Morris of Darfield High School, and Edgewater College principal, Allan Vester.
