As part of the annual BBC News School Report Day, a group of students from Claydon High School joined BBC Radio Suffolk's Mark Murphy to talk about mental health and what they are doing to tackle the issue in their own school.
Claydon High School has become only the second school in Suffolk to embark upon the Mental Health First Aid course, run in conjunction with the charity, Volunteering Matters.
Taking the opportunity to raise the issue with their local MP, the students interviewed Dr Dan live on air, asking his views about what more needs to be done to improve mental health services for all, especially young people.
When asked about whether or not Dr Dan would like to see all students in Suffolk undertake the mental health first aid training, Dr Dan replied that he would be very much in favour of seeing greater awareness of mental health being made compulsory in all schools.
