Martine: I believe that children should not suffer mental health problems alone. 1 in 10 children have a diagnosed mental health problem. 1 in every 12 children self harm due to distress. Teenage suicide is sadly the third leading cause of premature death. We must not be ashamed to talk about it. We must all hold our hand out to these desperate young people, and offer support.
I work with children and adolescents to assist in the development of coping strategies for prolonged emotional difficulties.
