2 of 3 parents want schools to expand health education
from HealthDay News via UPI
Many parents want teachers to go beyond sex education and substance abuse issues in their health classes, a new poll finds. Middle and high schools should teach kids how to cope with issues such as stress, depression, bullying and suicide, according to two out of three parents surveyed. "These results suggest that the stigma of mental health issues may have relaxed among today's parents, in favor of using a broad array of resources to help children and adolescents with these critical areas," said Sarah Clark. She is co-director of the C.S. Mott Children's Hospital National Poll on Children's Health.
