Catherine Besa, Chisha Luembe and Sandra Lumamba discuss how student mental health is dealt with in different settings including in primary schools through to university. Deteriorating student mental health is not unique to Africa. It is a global crisis. Schools are scrambling to adapt and handle the growing mental health needs of their learners including dealing with suicide watch frequently.
However, It is common for the older generation to be dismissive by saying "In our times we were mentally stronger, but children of these days are weak."
Is this true? What has changed? What can be done?
The world has advanced so quickly. However, education in Africa is not keeping up at the same pace. Be it the curriculum content, teaching methods or stakeholders commitment, there is an urgency to adapt to the times. Furthermore, conversations around Education have only focused on the traditional models. Until now.
The Educated Africana, hosted by Tebogo Kangote III brings together diverse voices to have in depth discussions about Education in Africa.
