“I think it would flag some people that maybe you wouldn’t find things out until it was really quite serious.”

The Science

The science behind Artemis

Studies have shown that mental health difficulties among young people are increasing. 1 in 7 secondary school pupils suffer from a mental health disorder but most of these young people are not identified. Schools are a good place to spot young people who are struggling and making sure they get the help they need.

In this section, discover how Artemis-A has been developed by experts in mental health and co-produced with end user, what does the app do and how it works.

Quick and easy access to mental health resources

Mental health difficulties such anxiety and depression affect 1 in 7 secondary school pupils. Teenagers with poor mental health are more likely to struggle at school and engage in risky behaviours such as self-harm. If mental health difficulties carry on into adulthood, they can have negative impacts on social life, health and work. However, if these difficulties are identified and treated early on, they often improve.

Schools are an ideal place to identify young people who need mental health support. Many mental health difficulties start during school-age and staff usually know students and their families well. Young people identified by schools are more likely to receive support and have better outcomes than young people whose difficulties are identified outside of schools. Assessing all young people in schools for mental health problems will make it less likely that some people with problems will be missed.
