Please note the question mark... This one might interest you @Eureka! Link to the BBC story Schools are having to make 999 calls to get treatment for pupils suffering from mental health problems because of service shortages, head teachers say. They are having to call ambulances or the police to get pupils to A&E for the help they need, they say. Some schools are being asked to pay for services for troubled pupils that should be provided by the NHS or social services, says the ASCL heads' union . The government said it had ring-fenced £1.4bn for children's mental health. I know my ex-employer made no provision for mental health although SLT paid lip service to it. I think the stress inherent in the education system is definitely playing a role. Obviously there are factors outside of that as well.
