I am shocked to read that the number of children in England in mental health crisis is at a record high. It is clear that mental health issues are becoming increasingly prevalent in young people. This should be a wake up call to the government and wider society that more needs to be done to provide accessible mental health services and education. We must ensure that we are creating an environment in which young people feel safe and supported to discuss their mental health. This means providing adequate mental health services, as well as education about mental health and emotional wellbeing in schools and communities. It is also crucial that we are aware of the factors that can affect mental health, and make sure that these are addressed. We must do all we can to ensure the mental health of our young people.
