Kids In Schools To Be Given Mindfulness Lessons To Cope With Stress

Pupils are getting classes in breathing techniques and mindfulness to help their mental health

The Duchess of Cambridge was greeted by an excitable pup (right) as she arrived at Lavender Primary School in Enfield this morning, the first of two engagements on Tuesday marking Children's Mental Health Week.

"In 10 years, I want to look back and see that a system of care has been established within the schools that support access to an array of health services for children and adolescents", said Brinson.

Rob Fleming, Minister of Education, said educators, students and parents have reported they need some help to better identify early warning signs and provide ongoing support to youth with mental health issues.

The youngsters had been asked to share objects that represented something that made them feel good.

Teenagers that spend more time on screens such as playing video games, watching TV, on social media and texting, are likely to be significantly unhappier than those who invest more time in non-screen activities like sport, reading books and face-to-face social interaction.

In addition to meeting with students, Kate was introduced to - get this - Herbie, the "school dog". It's the Cambridge family's last Christmas portrait that included all five members-Prince William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and little Prince Louis.

"She was wonderful with the children and was keen to speak to the parents about the whole helps with their mental wellbeing too".

"I loved art when I was at school, and I did art A level as well".

If the photo looks familiar to you, that's because it is! "It will be a skill you'll have for life".

Kate also met the woman named as the world's best teacher, Andria Zafirakou, for supporting the wellbeing of pupils and staff at the school.

"So much time and effort and energy goes into making these, it must be so appreciated by those who receive them", she said. Adult mental health patients often stay in less than ideal conditions, including in the basement of the Dube Centre in the Electroconvulsive Therapy suite where they are shuffled around during the day so others can get treatment; or they stay wherever there is space in the Royal University Hospital.
