Children and Young Peoples Mental Health

Designed for people with an interest in the mental health of children and young people.

Mental  health problems affect around 1 in 10 children and young people. These  issues include depression, anxiety and conduct disorder and can often be  a direct response to occurrences in their lives. Emotional wellbeing is  just as important as a child’s mental health, therefore it is important  for those working with children and young people to have a good  understanding of the concepts, risk factors and impact of mental health.
