  • Mental health awareness emphasizes physical fitness, children's mental health

Asked for tips on maintaining one's mental health, Handley offered that creating connections for oneself was of the utmost importance. "Mental health and substance use effects all of us in some ways, in some element of our life".

As National Children's Mental Health Awareness Week continues, experts in Columbus are inviting parents, teachers, caregivers and other professionals, to change the conversation when it comes to addressing childhood trauma. Numerous findings are also in line with experiences in many of our colleges, particularly since it is clear that 75 per cent of mental health conditions are established before the age of 24.

MPs from the education and health and social care committees criticised the government's green paper on children's mental health, saying it "lacks ambition and will provide no help for the majority of those children who desperately need it". "We heard of the strong links between social disadvantage and mental health issues". It advocates for improved and comprehensive community mental health services in Newfoundland and Labrador. "As part of that navigation, the less barriers we can put up to them in those building blocks that they're trying to get developed at that point the better", Handley said, adding that putting a number of youth services under one roof is a way to tear down that barrier. May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and for that reason if no other, take the time today to think about how you are taking care of your mental, and make an effort to do a reach out to a family member or friend, whether or not you think they need a reach out.

It follows a warning from school leaders' union NAHT last week that more than 90 per cent of teachers are unable to access specialist mental health support for their pupils. We have long argued that such centres provide a vital service to children and families, and we hope that as the government looks to move forward with its work on children's mental health, it will recognise the crucial role that children's centres play by providing proper clarity over their future'.

The Canadian Mental Health Association said The Centre for Excellence in Recovery and Peer Support is the first of its kind in Alberta. The Government's plans will fail a generation.

Meanwhile, Haspel was on Capitol Hill Monday making the case for herself. By Saturday she had reportedly agreed to continue with the nomination.

She said: "A government that's complacent about child poverty and relaxed about excessive testing in schools can't claim to care about young people's mental health".

She said that the committee wants to see more evidence that the government will join up services in a way that places children and young people at their heart, improving services to all children rather than a minority.

"We agree that every young person should be able to access mental health support - however we need to ensure we get this right, which is why we will pilot this approach to make sure services are correct".

"We also want the Government to make up the £2 billion estimated shortfall in council children's services funding to help ensure children get the support they need at an early stage and reduce the likelihood that their mental health will be affected".

The committees have called for the government to commit to a full assessment of the current transition arrangements between child and adult mental health services, proposing 25 as a more appropriate age.
