Andrea Welcomes Mental Health Help For Young People

Earlier this month I visited Morley Newlands Primary during Children's Mental Health week.

It was inspiring to see the work that charities like Place2Be are doing to introduce mental health awareness and support for young people in schools.

More help for mental health is an important part of my plan for our local area, and I’m glad that the Government has announced it will be ensuring that all children in England will be taught how to look after their mental well being, and recognise when classmates may be struggling.

With a little boy of my own, I feel more than ever that it is vital we make sure young people have the knowledge they need to grow up healthy, happy and safe.
