Fletcher, Andrew – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2022
A version of education conditioned by a focus on measurable outcomes contributes to the unhappiness of children. Using an approach that relates the current crisis in mental health to Simone Weil's concept of affliction, I argue that culture, suffering from its own instrumentalisation as cure, needs itself to be healed. Using a case study of…

Gipps, Richard G. T. – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2022
Anxiety is today increasingly talked about as if it were a condition or illness from which one suffers. This obscures the sense in which it may be said to have a meaning, that meaning being that the self is currently ill-equipped to handle its predicaments. It also obscures the sense in which anxiety's apt 'prevention' and 'treatment' most often…

Szymanski, Adam – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2022
If mental health has become a reactionary concept, much like the notion of public health in the age of the COVID-19 pandemic, then how can critical theory best elaborate a concern for well-being which includes both a psychic and social dimension? This article proposes the concept of existential health to grasp the salubrious zest for life that has…

Smith, Richard – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2022
We are regularly told that mental health problems are becoming more and more prevalent today, a trend exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic. This way of conceiving what might rather be called people's--and particularly young people's--distress has several sources. Medical science has made spectacular progress over the last 50 years, encouraging…

Gojmerac, Marie – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2022
Educational institutions are moving to apply mental health interventions in their classrooms. This is in many ways seen as a preventative public health intervention. However, the application of psychiatry to the classroom must be carefully considered, as there are risks to this that are not appreciated by the psychiatric establishment. Deep…

Timimi, Sami; Timimi, Zoe – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2022
Much of Western media has promoted the idea that we are facing an epidemic of mental illness and psychiatric emergencies in contemporary Western society and worldwide, and that young people are a particularly vulnerable group. Schools have become a prominent site of concern and focus for this discourse as mental health problems are said to start…

Standish, Paul – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2022
Much thinking in psychology and related forms of psychotherapy is in the grip of a conception of inner-outer relationships that distorts the reality of our lives and world. In his later work, and in the last years of his life especially, Wittgenstein battled against this. In the course of his criticism, he developed vivid images that challenge…

Skilbeck, Adrian – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2022
Despite the convergence of approaches to mental health in schools, criticisms have been levelled about the triviality of mindfulness and the reluctance of teachers to encourage more personal expression in the classroom, relying instead on a mixture of ancient practices and modern cognitive behavioural therapy. Furthermore, there are still real…

Brady, Alison M. – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2022
In this paper, I will begin by charting some of the conceptions of mental health in young people today, paying particular attention to recent mental health education policies in England. I will focus on the concept of 'resilience' as central to these policies, and how this represents an impoverished understanding of mental health, what it means to…

Lee, Soyoung – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2022
This paper addresses the question of mental health, in particular the manner in which it finds its way into education. Increased attention to mental health in education should be welcomed, but often the focus is on 'problem-solving', which in turn confines the 'solution' within the spectrum of preventive and corrective intervention. Often it is…

Williams, Emma – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2022
A recent production of "Romeo and Juliet" at the Globe Theatre in London has foregrounded the themes of mental health and a sick society. My essay begins by exploring the controversial reception of the 2021 production. But Shakespeare's play has a number of key features that are undecidable, by design. These are directly relevant to the…

In 2017, the Departments of Health and Education in the United Kingdom initiated a national mental health agenda that includes new curriculum interventions and mandatory training courses for teachers.

Cousins, Alex – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2022
The common factors hypothesis holds that therapy's effectiveness is not found in features of specific therapeutic methods, but rather that therapy is helpful due to the presence of three general features that all therapeutic modalities share: positive clinician traits, commitment to a common practice to achieve a common goal and effective…
