A recent article in The Guardian focused on a research study being published in Psychological Medicine, that looked at the impact of school exclusion, or suspension, on long term mental health. Researchers analyzed child and adolescent mental health surveys collected by England’s Department of Health, of more than 5,000 children, their parents and teachers. The study found a “bi-directional association” between psychological distress and exclusion.
