3 student boys share their astute and insightful ideas of what makes a difference to their mental health in school
Men’s mental health – Building trust to open up mental health conversations
In this interview with 3 secondary school boys, Anna invites comments and suggestions for what schools can do to help and support boys who present with mental health difficulties. Their shared insights and ideas are many and varied, making this podcast a must listen for all mental health leads.
An important observation they make is when boys misbehave or show uncharacteristic traits, this is often a signal that something deeper is going on. Our boys speak candidly about the importance of being listened to, and for teachers to delve deeper before administering punishments. Our accompanying handout includes links for further support for men as well as boys.
