Start teaching students about mental health from a young age

Many students are not taught about mental illness from a young age. So when they develop symptoms of a mental illness when they are teenagers they are unaware of what they are feeling and who and where they can seek help.
Also people need to learn to recognise symptoms in their friends so they can encourage them to seek help before it's too late.
Ideally I would love for mental illnesses and the feeling surrounding them to be taught to children from the age of 9 and incorporated into curriculum across the UK.
