Sadly, millions of children today are affected by mental health problems, almost a doubling of the number of sufferers in just one generation.
Now, in this timely new book, mental health experts provide invaluable information and guidance for concerned parents, teachers and young adults. With chapters covering subjects such as child and adolescent development, parenting skills, problems at school, emotional health and wellbeing, The Young Mind also looks specifically at some of the most distressing problems facing young people today, including anxiety and stress disorders, drugs, alcohol, self-harm and psycho-sexual development.
Illustrated and written in a completely accessible style by some of the most distinguished and respected professionals in the field of child and adolescent psychiatry, The Young Mind offers a guiding hand and insight into this most vital area of mental health.
“Two child psychiatrists bring together the contributions of 30 professionals in an eminently practical guide to the emotional development of children and adolescents. With necessarily short chapters on common anxieties, from depression and eating disorders to schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, there is a wealth of information on support agencies and further reading. An excellent first point of reference for parents and teachers.”
