Of course it isn´t because of the Microwave Radiation! Pupils as young as four having panic attacks, say teachers
United Kingdom Created: 17 Apr 2017
Children as young as four are suffering from mental health problems such as panic attacks, anxiety and depression, says a teachers' union.
Almost all of the 2,000 who responded to an NASUWT survey said they had come into contact with mentally ill pupils.
Members of the teachers' union suggest schools are struggling to access enough support to deal with the issue.
The Department for Education said it was investing £1.4bn to ensure all children get the help they need.
The NASUWT teachers' union is highlighting the problem at its annual conference in Manchester this weekend and it will also warn of problems with school funding.

The survey found:
· 98% of teachers said they had come into contact with pupils who were experiencing mental health issues.
· They were most likely to be teenagers, with more than half of teachers saying they had seen issues in 14 to 16-year-olds.
· But nearly a fifth (18%) of those surveyed by the union said they had been in contact with four to seven-year-olds showing mental health issues while more than a third (35%) had seen problems in youngsters aged seven to 11.
Nine in 10 said they had experienced a pupil of any age suffering from anxiety and panic attacks, while 79% were aware of a pupil suffering from depression and 64% knew of a youngster who was self-harming.
Around half (49%) were aware of children with eating disorders, and a similar proportion (47%) knew about a youngster with obsessive compulsive disorder.
Pressure of exams and testing, family problems such as ill health or a break-up and SOCIAL MEDIA were all seen as having an impact on mental health.
