Why Safeguarding Young Minds

We, as parents and professionals, are increasingly aware of the need to protect children and young people from neglect and abuse by those who may wish them harm and yet, we often struggle to be as vigilant and proactive when seeking to safeguard them from their own emotional and mental distress. 

75% of mental health problems start before a child’s 18th birthday. 

Alarmingly, 70% of children who experience a mental health problem do not get the interventions they need at a sufficiently early age.
