Thinking differently about mental health and wellbeing

Our response to Mental Health of Children and Young People in England Report

In response to today's report and coverage on the Mental Health of Children and Young People in England:

We believe that society should take a compassionate approach when looking at anyone’s mental health, no matter what their age.  There have been many studies that show Adverse Childhood Experiences have negative impacts on a young person’s mental health and behaviour and these ACEs can include abuse, trauma, bullying, neglect, domestic abuse and growing up in a household in which there are adults experiencing alcohol and drug use problems.

Children’s mental health cannot be looked at in isolation to their lived experience and environment.  We believe that children and families need support to recover and thrive and this support needs to consider the whole person.  We will shortly be launching a campaign focussing on young people and peer mentoring as an effective and innovative approach to supporting young people overcoming difficult circumstances.
