Young people and mental health

Great that young people’s mental health is getting a high profile in the media at the moment. Last night The Surgery with Aled on Radio 1 focused entirely on this issue. It’s only on i-player for a week, so catch it quickly. Saturday’s Guardian had an article on the need to tackle misunderstanding and prejudice around mental health issues among young people. It details a debate organised by the mental health anti-stigma campaign Time to Change. Well worth reading.

For anyone who doesn’t know it already, the Young Minds website is extremely valuable. Young Minds is a charity dedicated to improving children’s and young people’s well-being and mental health.
