It must have taken courage to write this book it's personal and it covers an issue which people don t want to talk about, but which increasingly cries out for attention and discussion by school leaders and those who hold them to account. It deserves the widest readership and is a wake-up call for all educators. --Sir Tim Brighouse, former London Schools Commissioner and Chief Education Officer for Birmingham and Oxfordshire
Amidst the increasingly apocalyptic tone of debates about the contemporary state of young people s mental health, this book makes a crucial contribution to thinking about the nature of the problem and what schools, colleges and universities should do about it. John Tomsett s book weaves brilliantly his own experience of his mother s mental illness, his father s stoicism and resilience and changing social responses to mental illness with a genuine desire to understand what s going on with young people today. His thoughtful, compelling and provocative book offers practical responses for head teachers, teachers and parents. Most importantly, his book is a rallying call to regain confidence in the power of subject-based education and the power of authentic, engaged relationships between teachers and students as key to enhancing young people s wellbeing. --Kathryn Ecclestone, Professor of Education, University of Sheffield, co-author of The Dangerous Rise of Therapeutic Education
