Mental Health in Schools

“Teacher’s Perspectives on Monitoring Students’ Mental Health in UK Schools.”

This doctoral project, led by Jessica Lorimer and funded by the Medical Research Council, looks closely at teachers’ views on using digital tools for mental health within the classroom, focusing on technology which predicts student self-harm and suicide.

The project is currently recruiting, and we are looking for teachers who would be interested in being interviewed. This is an opportunity for teachers at UK schools to anonymously provide feedback on school mental health initiatives and new technology more generally. Interviews will take no longer than an hour and can be done online.

If this is something you or teachers at your school would be interested in, please email
