Why can Psychoeducation be implemented in schools?
Group psychoeducation can also be implemented in schools as a preventative measure. Educating children in schools about relevant issues is commonly used as a preventative measure for subjects such as; Teenage pregnancy, Social competency, Eating disorders, Anger management and Anxiety. Around 25% of children and young people in the developed world have an identifiable mental health problem. Yet, The Good Childhood Enquiry, suggests that 70% of children and adolescents who experience mental health problems have not had appropriate interventions at a sufficiently early age.
