    School children will benefit from better access to NHS mental health workers in an attempt to stop depression and anxiety from destroying their lives.

    While being interviewed by The Telegraph, Prince Harry revealed that he had sought counselling to help him come to terms with the death of his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, as he struggled for a couple of years in his late twenties to deal with losing her. 

    Other public figures and politicians have also begun to reveal their experiences with mental health. One Labour MP described his experience after losing his sister as “chaos and madness”.

    According to Theresa May, this intervention will help to “smash the stigma” around mental health and help a lot of people realise “they are “not alone”.

    She said:

    “Mental health problems affect people of all ages and all backgrounds. The bravery of those in public positions who speak out about their experiences help smash the stigma around mental health and will help thousands of people to realise they are not alone.

    “If we are to tackle this injustice, we must forge a new approach that recognises our responsibility to each other, and make mental illness an everyday concern for all of us and in every one of our institutions.”

    Ministers are presently planning to put NHS professionals in secondary schools on a full-time basis as a green paper on young people and mental health will be revealed later in the year; this suggests that qualified NHS medical workers should be based in larger secondary schools, or provide support for networks of smaller schools.
