For many, thinking about their boarding school stay can bring many positive memories and happy moments. But for others, the same thoughts can quickly trigger a full-blown attack of post-traumatic stress disorder. The opinions and experiences related to boarding schools are diverse and divided and may confuse anyone who plans to join one. In reality, someone who did not struggle academically found good friends and was not in a minority group is likely to have a good time.
However, for a few people, the experience of attending a boarding school revolves around getting away from family, sometimes at a very early age. This leaves them with multiple emotional scars and unhealthy behaviours developed as a survival strategy during their time in the boarding school. These issues and many others are collectively termed boarding school syndrome.
What is boarding school syndrome? How does it manifest in an individual, and what are different ways to treat its symptoms? This article will detail the key features of this lesser-known psychiatric issue.
