Because mental health isn’t just an adult issue

I’ve been writing quite a bit this month on mental health and children and young people.  I was young when I first experienced a panic attack and had no idea what was happening. And we know the experience can be made all the more difficult to endure if you can’t communicate what’s happening – it can feel lonely and isolating and, well, pretty damn weird!

So here are the two articles online with Metro – please share your thoughts in the comment section. It’s an interesting – and very important – topic.

Why mental health education should be compulsory in schools

How should we talk to children and young people about mental health

If you want any further information on these topics, please visit Young Minds or the Shaw Mind Foundation.
