New ‘happiness’ service launched to combat school mental health crisis

A new wellbeing subscription service is launched this week which aims to tackle the biggest issue facing education today – mental health. Dubbed ‘Netflix for wellbeing’, Brilliant Schools is a wellbeing club that enables schools to ‘subscribe to happiness’ by providing tools and resources to help boost the wellbeing of pupils, teachers and parents, all through a simple, not-for-profit subscription.

The mental health crisis in our schools is well documented. UK teenagers rank next to bottom in international measures of wellbeing, while a recent report by the Children’s Society revealed that a shocking 1 in 4 14-year-old girls admits to self-harming to cope with the pressures of modern life.
