This is one approach to the large problem I was talking about earlier this week. Getting emotional support and mental heath resources to people at a young age would help them need it less as adults.
“Easing the pressures on children and young people by teaching them how to manage their emotional wellbeing should be a priority, said Samaritans CEO Ruth Sutherland.
“In Children’s Mental Health Week we all need to be more aware of the need to support children to meet the challenge of life’s ups and downs, and prepare them to get through tough times,” said Ruth.
“No one is born knowing how to deal with emotions. You have to learn, and some people find it harder than others. However, it is as important as learning to read and write, and we want to help children grow up to be resilient in the face of life’s traumas and setbacks,” Ruth added.”
