In the forthcoming ‘Mental Health Question Time’ event, we bring together a diverse panel of knowledgeable experts to discuss how the specific mental health needs of children and adolescents can be addressed in the school setting.

What should be the priorities for mental health in schools?

What works to prevent and treat mental illness in the school setting?

Should schoolteachers and GPs be the frontline point of contact for mental health services? If so, what training is needed for these people to be comfortable performing this role?

How should parents, caregivers, health professionals, schools and other agencies best work together to support young people?

What do young people want?

Panellists include:

Prof Glyn Lewis, UCL Psychiatry (Chair)

Dr Dominique Thompson (GP and student mental health expert)

Lucinda Powell (Former psychology teacher, now working with schools and organisations to empower them to improve mental health and wellbeing amongst young people

Mary George (Mental health blogger, Time to Change Young Champion, History student at Oxford University)

Dr Susanne Schweizer (Sir Henry Wellcome Fellow, Blakemore Lab, UCL)

Dr Jane Godsland (Editor-in-chief of The Lancet Child & Adolescent Health)

Dr Gemma Knowles (Epidemiologist and Researcher on The REACH Study, KCL)
