Police in South Wales have called for better mental health education in schools after a rise in young people being detained under the Mental Health Act. Some 48 children and young people were detained by South Wales Police in 2016-17, up 33% from the year before. Mind Cymru says schools should do more to raise awareness of mental health issues and step in to help those who are having problems sooner. Sara Moseley, Director of Mind Cymru, supported South Wales Police’s calls for better mental health education.
