People are calling on the government to introduce emotional counselling in schools.

The Joint Oireachtas Committee on Education has listed emotional counselling in schools as a key recommendation.

There have been calls to make it a legal requirement for the supports to be available in schools.

DCU Associate Professor in Psychology of Education, Dr. Paul Downes, has said it can help with complications such as parental issues, bullying and mental health.

According to Dr. Downes, emotional counselling is available in colleges, but that "emotions with younger people" doesn't start at 18.
