Student Mental Health

Student Mental Health

The Innovation Index survey, an annual survey carried out by an independent party and commissioned by Bett to understand the needs and challenges of educators, consisted of extensive research into the UK and EU education market, with responses from over 1,700 educators.

Only 54% of those surveyed feel equipped to deal with any negative effects social media may have on learners’ mental wellbeing. This leaves plenty of room for awareness and growth in this area, and encourages a wider discussion that needs to take place.

Some key findings on educators:

Only 53% felt confident in identifying a mental health problem with a learner
Only 55% felt confident in knowing what to do if a learner experienced a mental health problem
Only 44% felt that they had been given sufficient training to deal with mental health issues experienced by learners

Dive deeper and discover the increasing role teachers are taking in the mental health of their students…
