As great as the Education system is in Ireland, unfortunately, it still operates from an archaic based ethos, leaving our technology ingrained children lost at times. I feel its imperative to not only train our Teachers to just teach, but to train them as all rounded Educators, with comprehensive training in childcare, counselling and most importantly mental health. I am appealing for reform in our schools, in particular, the necessity for Mental Health Services, without delay. I appeal to the Government to incorporate mandatory mental health training for all Teachers. Such awareness is pivotal to the emotional and psychological development of our children. Time for change is now. No more excuses.
