Well Being and Exam Stress

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I am continuing to work with Local Authorities and the NHS to develop London-wide tools to help support young Londoners, acting on the concerns raised about our young people’s mental health and wellbeing. Further details of this can be found here www.london.gov.uk/mental-health-school.

My Healthy Schools London programme supports schools to focus on the mental health and wellbeing of pupils, and I recently wrote to London headteachers providing a toolkit of resources they can use to support the young people in their care.  I am also funding the roll out of Youth Mental Health First Aid across all state schools In London.
