Schools and centres for education are increasingly positioned as playing a vital role in the promotion of young people’s mental health and well-being. Drawing on the example of Ireland’s reformed Junior Cycle curriculum (ages 12-15), we ask if the curriculum is the best means of nurturing positive mental health and well-being in schools.
Afterword to Dr Áine Mahon’s book ‘The Promise of the University: Reclaiming, Humanity, Humility and Hope’.
With a particular focus on the experience of young people in higher education, this paper turns to the philosophical work of Cora Diamond to open up new ways of conceptualising mental health.
