Young people have their say on mental health issues on World Mental Health Day

 More than 70 young people in integrated education across Northern Ireland had their say on mental health issues at a conference at Drumlins Integrated Primary School, Ballynahinch, yesterday, Thursday 10 October 2019

World Mental Health Day. ‘Listening … A Mental Health Conference’ was organised by the Integrated Education Fund (IEF) in partnership with Northern Ireland Council for Integrated Education (NICIE) and supported by the National Lottery Community Fund. Teachers from integrated schools each brought four pupils to present their views and the views of their peers. After listening to young keynote speakers, participants were facilitated in small groups to share their thoughts on the current stresses and anxieties experienced by young people, before generating ideas and actions to develop school-based support.
