There are calls for guidance counselors in schools to be given training in psychotherapy.

The measure is among a number of proposals contained in a new report on mental health in our schools.

The Oireachtas Education committee has published the document today.

Chairperson, Kildare South Fianna Fáil TD, Fiona O'Loughlin says it's paramount teachers are given more supports to help pupils suffering mental health difficulties:
