4th May 2016 - Mental Health Champion Axed


On 4th May 2016 the role of Mental Health champion in schools was axed. Natasha Devon had been given the role in August 2015. The government hoped that she would help promote things like peer to peer support at school. But she saw issues in the education system such as excessive testing that did not help mental health, and she tried to tackle these, and publicised her efforts through social media. In the end the role came to an end. See more in the Guardian article mental health champion axed after criticising government.

Thanks to Google for this date.
