The Centre for Mental Health has made recommendations to tackle these inequalities. Those relevant to schools include:
The daily wear and tear experiences of racism have been linked to a range of poor mental health outcomes, including anxiety and depression. Racial discrimination and violence are also traumatic, which can result from direct or indirect, single or cumulative experiences of racism. This impact is communal, as well as individual. Repeatedly seeing discrimination and violence against their peers can have a negative impact on the mental health of everyone involved.
Boost the focus on early years
Implement the whole school approach to mental health
