"Mental health problems rife among teenagers but teachers lack skills to help" says Guardian

Training for school staff in South Staffordshire that provides skills on helping teenagers' mental health

"MPs were warned that schools had only a “patchy” ability to pick up and prevent mental health problems in pupils."  -

Presumably because teachers' are pulled in many directions with competing demands on limited time?

If you are a teacher or school in South Staffordshire interested in gaining the skills  and knowledge of what to look for and what to do, consider the Hope Project for training and ongoing CPD.
