Mind Matters: Schools Should Nurture Good Mental Health

It’s back to school for the 2022 academic year next week. Students, parents and teachers are all eagerly - and anxiously - waiting to see what the new school year has in store. Meanwhile, mental health issues among children and teenagers have come to the fore in the past two years, underscoring the challenges that young people face as they juggle studies, relationships and their own emotional ups and downs. 

On this episode of Mind Matters, we speak to two teenagers to find out what causes stress in young people and how the KAMI Juara programme in their community has helped them. Clinical psychologist Chase Tan also weighs in on why it’s important for the school environment to be a safe space for children in terms of protecting their mental wellbeing.
