As signalled from the start of her premiership, she intends to provide mental health support in every school, with a member of staff trained in mental health first aid. There was a bill introduced in the House, that will address that very issue. The issues are: funding problems and a fairer funding formula across the country; teacher recruitment and retention, especially in disadvantaged areas; and the inevitable fallout from the Gove era reforms to exams, curriculum and accountability.
Mental Health Foundation CEO Jenny Edwards says exercise can play a big part in staving off depression.
Republicans insist their plan would save money for the federal government, but their inattention to mental health reminds us of the proverb about an ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure.
But mental health issues tend to be less visible, so they are generally lower in the order of political priorities.
The theme of this year's Mental Health Awareness week, is "survive to thrive".

If you or a loved one are in need of emergency help, a crisis line volunteer can be reached at any time at 937-393-9904.
Miss Edwards continued: "With two in three of us experiencing a mental health problem in our lives, we need to respond to this public health emergency with a Thriving Nation programme. Parents, carers and young people can receive direct support through CAMHS".
Intervention has always been a buzz term in mental health. We can help in many ways. It is also hard for schools to access these services.
Finally, regardless of how supportive the employer/colleagues would be in reality, the unfortunate fact is that a large number of employees are scared that owning up to a mental health issue may adversely impact their career, promotion or salary prospects, bonus or the like. That review is under way and is nearly certain to report later in the year that, given the increasing number of young people with mental health issues, CAMHS is under-resourced for the job it was established to carry out.
