Author and mental health campaign Ioakim Eleftheros has been featured in the national press with a dire warning that UK schools are leaving themselves vulnerable to US-style massacres.
Eleftheroes, a mental health expert and client of author PR agency Palamedes, says that this is because teachers are incapable of spotting symptoms of mental illness among their pupils.
He believes that the government must act to help teachers learn how to spot ‘red flag behaviours’ such as anger, irritability, persistent sadness ad withdrawal.
Teachers should also have extra powers to refer at-risk students for immediate psychiatric assessment before they have the chance to injure themselves or others.
