Petition to get Mental Health Education on the curriculum c/o Change.org

Laura Darrall London, United Kingdom

"Last year I had what society refers to as a mental breakdown and after coming out the other side I knew I needed to give something back. I started the #itaffectsme campaign to encourage people who have suffered or who know someone who has suffered to post selfies on social media - to help prove that the one in four people who suffer from mental health issues really are everywhere. 
#itaffectsme wants to see Mental Health Education put on the National Curriculum. To arm our children with knowledge, understanding and compassion. 1 in 4 people suffer with mental illness and 50% of those are established by age 14. We teach our children symptoms of chlamydia and gonorrhoea so why not depression, OCD and anxiety?" 

Note: I have copied this petition as I still wonder about the application of Hodges' model in schools, colleges to frame and support Personal Social Health Economic Education
