More Students Need to Have Mental Health Monitored

2013/02/09 | 146 views | Permalink | Source

The number of students who need to have their mental health monitored is growing.

The Education Ministry conducted mental health tests on about six-point-six million students at eleven-thousand elementary, middle and high schools nationwide last year.

The ministry said on Thursday that the percent of students who were classified into a group requiring in-depth counseling and close monitoring was recorded at two-point-six percent in 2010. It noted that the ratio steadily increased to three-point-seven percent in 2011 and four-and-a-half percent last year.

The ratio was the largest among middle school students at seven-point-one percent, followed by high schools students at five-point-four percent and elementary school students at two-point-four percent.

The ministry plans to enhance counseling programs at schools and establish relationships between schools and hospitals. It will also station psychiatrists at 60 schools with a significant number of high-risk students.
