39% rise in children needing mental health treatment. How can we help our children in this growing crisis?

Katharine Hill

It seems that hardly a week goes by without headlines reporting worrying figures about the emotional well-being of our children. The Guardian has recently reported that the number of under 18’s in England needing treatment for serious mental health problems has risen by 39% from 2021 – 2022. 

Experts say the pandemic, social inequality, austerity and online harm are all fuelling a crisis and making things even more challenging for our children. 

Our young people are undoubtedly growing up in a world full of pressure, challenge and risk – but it is also a world of opportunity and potential. As parents, we want them to navigate that world with confidence and hope, and a key way in which we can do this is to help build emotional resilience in their lives.
