Whilst teachers may be aware and supporting these pupils, many more go through school with an unrecognised and unsupported mental health condition, which can often have an detrimental impact on their education and future prospects. YMCA, with the help of Skanska, aims to support these individuals with the launch of a brand new mobile app that detects, prevents and treats many mental health conditions, signposting those in need of further help to the right support.
