Many of us have heard that getting ‘bums on seats’ is one of the most important aspects of schooling success. After all, missing school means missing important learning. If we know that students simply need to be in school, why should we care about mental health?
Dr Tamsin Ford and Dr Darren Moore examine the complex relationship between mental health and school attendance through the combined perspective of education and mental health fields, ultimately asking how we can help children and young people to thrive.
Following the discussion there will be an opportunity to ask questions.
