The 5th -11th February 2018 is Children's Mental Health week launched by Place2Be which gives support to children and young people’s mental health and emotional wellbeing.
One in ten children and young people are affected by mental health with 70% of them not having appropriate interventions at an early age.
This is one of the reasons why I wrote #whoami – young females and Why Shouldn't I Cry? – young males.
I hope that one day all children will have the help they need to overcome mental health.
I believe the children are our future,
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be
Whitney Houston – Greatest Love Of All.
