In-school Counselling, Commons Chamber on 9th November 2021.
Sharon Hodgson MP spoke in a debate in the the House of Commons Chamber, brought by The Rt. Hon Nick Brown MP, on school-based counselling services provision.
A silent epidemic is sweeping through our schoolchildren in poor mental health. For some children, school is a solace from difficulties at home.
In-school counselling services help children cope with a broad range of emotional pressures and reduce chronic mental health problems. Only around 61% of schools in the UK benefit from a counselling service, a sad deficit which the Tory Government must address.
