World Mental Health Day is coming up on the 10th October, it’s a good time to remember that mental health problems can affect everyone, including our young people. Unfortunately, 3 in 4 children with a diagnosable mental health condition do not get access to the support they need.
The charity YoungMinds is working hard to change this:
We’re leading the fight for a future where all young minds are supported and empowered, whatever the challenges. We’re here to make sure they get the best possible mental health support and have the resilience to overcome life’s difficulties.
The crisis in children and young people’s mental health is real and it is urgent. More children and young people than ever before are reaching out for help with their mental health. But for those who take that brave step, help is much too hard to find.
Please take a bit of time to visit the YoungMinds website for more information about the issues faced and how you can support them
