Very pleased and excited to be writing for the Talk Health Partnership with my first article as an affiliate blogger going up yesterday afternoon. Following on from my article on World Mental Health day I got to thinking more and more about how some of the issues around anxiety, pressure, depression and stress that young people face could be linked to the uncertainty around their futures and the pressure cooker that is education.
Obviously I’m not a mental health professional and wouldn’t pretend to be but my hope is that if parents recognize some of the stress their kids are under they can intercede with practical help. By shouldering some of the burden it may remove some of the stressers and those feelings of hopelessness, of being swamped can at least be mitigated.
Anyway, enough of that please toddle over to their page, check out my blog and excruciating photograph and have a shufty around the rest of the site if you’ve any other health concerns and want to pick the brains of a very supportive community.
