Mental Health Toolkit

This area of the Somerset Children and Young People's Health & Wellbeing website provides information and support about mental health and emotional health & wellbeing.

Mental health problems affect about 1 in 10 children and young people: they include depression, anxiety and conduct disorder, and are often a direct response to what is happening in their lives. There is a clear link between mental and physical health. The emotional wellbeing of children and young people is of equal importance to their physical health. Good mental health enables children and young people to enjoy and achieve.
