Two-Thirds Of Parents Want Schools To Teach More About Mental Health

HealthDay (9/19, Dallas) reports about two-thirds of parents want middle schools and high schools to teach their students about “how to cope with issues such as stress, depression, bullying and suicide,” in their health classes, according to a survey done by C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital National Poll on Children’s Health. Many parents responded that their children’s schools do not currently teach about these topics in health classes.
