Mental Health Week launched in North Battleford

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

However, Reed - a member of the Congressional Mental Health Caucus and the House Suicide Prevention Task Force - has demonstrated a commitment to numerous mental health initiatives while in Congress.

The Children's Society has responded to the Education and Health and Social Care Committees' report on the Government's Green Paper on Child Mental Health.

The report continues: "This appears to be another example of a failure to join up relevant policies: the government is expending resources to promote apprenticeships; yet failing to provide support for this growing group of young people". We are developing a comprehensive mental-health and addictions strategy across government, focused on early intervention and prevention, and treatment and recovery.

Dr. Sarah Davidon, research director at Mental Health Colorado and faculty member at the University of Colorado School of Medicine speaks at Monday's Mental Health Matters conference at Northern Michigan University, which was organized by the Upper Peninsula Children's Coalition. The Government's plans will fail a generation.

We are all affected by mental-health challenges in some way. "So, I think it's really important that whoever touches the lives of young children, so pediatricians, schools or early learning centers and childcare, can do screenings to assess how kids are doing in terms of their mental health and social emotional health".

"We know that early access to mental health services is essential to reducing the severity of mental health conditions", the letter reads. An estimated 45% of looked-after children have a diagnosable mental health problem.

Zielke de Montbrun encouraged residents to use the #getloud hashtag on social media to show their support for mental health.

Child and Youth Mental Health Day and Mental Health Week are an important time for all British Columbians to come together and spread awareness about how mental health affects us all, and give this important day and week the heartfelt recognition that it deserves. "Participants will also have an opportunity to connect with more than 20 organizations and agencies in the mental health and wellness field".

Davidon noted that the mental health system is now quite different than the physical health system - there has been a growing focus on wellness and prevention for physical health but this is not the case for mental health.

David Hughes, AoC chief executive, added: "We welcome the way in which the Green Paper is highlighting the importance of education in supporting young people with mental health difficulties".

"As a starting point, we want to see councils and schools given the funding to offer independent mental health counselling so pupils have access to support as and when they need it", he said. Adverse childhood experiences such as poor attachment or through parental alcohol and drug abuse or domestic violence can have a bad bearing on future well-being and a preventative approach in the early years must be a core part of the Government's strategy.

"We completely reject any suggestion that our plans lack ambition - these changes will transform mental health services for children and young people, including the first ever waiting time standards for those with the most serious problems", they said.
