Hi there. I am starting this petition to bring mental health awareness into the education system.
My name is Leanne and I strongly believe that children in schools across N.I could greatly benefit from a mandatory class regarding mental health issues and how to prevent/help eachother through tough times. This mandatory class could give children the tools and insight against bullying, self care and self confidence. I strongly feel that our children in schools could benefit from this greatly as Northern Ireland have a higher rate of suicide than Europe. Also, more people have died due to suicide than the amount of people who had their lives taken during the troubles in N.I.
I ask you to please sign this petition to help make this mandatory self care class make it into a school time table, be it half an hour per week.
