Amazing Me – Tackling Mental Health and Wellbeing in Schools – Tracy Richardson


Mental health problems affect about 1 in 10 children and young people. They include depression, anxiety and conduct disorder, and are often a direct response to what is happening in their lives.
Alarmingly, however, 70% of children and young people who experience a mental health problem have not had appropriate interventions at a sufficiently early age.
That’s why I was pleased to learn that a new initiative to tackle mental health problems in children, is taking off locally.
Amazing Me, is designed to provide primary schools with a programme packed full of accessible and engaging materials to build good mental health and wellbeing, and my guest today was Tracy Richardson, who came in to tell us all about it.
