At the School/College level
At schools and colleges, students are often under immense amounts of stress, which may either manifest as a mental illness or further exacerbate an existing mental health condition. Implementation of interventions focussing on early recognition, mental health promotion and raising awareness about available treatment methods may be easier in educational settings such as schools and colleges. Further, teachers and motivated youth can act as effective gatekeepers, while also increasing positive peer interaction among the students.
