Worried About A Child You Work With?

1 in 4 people experience some form of mental health problems in their lives. Many of these problems start in childhood.

Therefore all adults working with children and young people will find themselves supporting a child with emotional or behavioural problems in the course of their work.

Many children with mental health or emotional difficulties will confide in someone they already know and trust. Therefore you are likely to be the first port of call for some young people.
