As schools in England prepare to take part in a mental health trial, Nick Ferrari tries out a mindfulness session in the LBC studio led by MiSP’s Richard Burnett.
More than 300 schools in England will take part in one of the largest mental health trials in the world, designed to support mental health and well-being.
In his announcement, Damian Hinds said that the trials on schoolchildren are “key to improving our understanding of how practical, simple advice can help young people cope with the pressures they face”.
The study is expected to run until 2021, and will include schools in Brighton and Hove, Devon, Doncaster, London Borough of Merton, North Yorkshire, North Tyneside, Salford, Staffordshire and West Berkshire.
