23 September 2022

Writing in the BACP’s Children, Young People and Families journal, Anthony Kessel claims 'It's Time to Get Creative'.

Anthony questions the state of young people’s psychological wellbeing, drawing on his experience from both public health and as an author of fiction for children and young adults. 

"In this article, I explore the prevalence of mental health problems in children and young people and how psychological wellbeing in this age group can be improved.  First, I examine whether the rise in mental health conditions is real or artefact. Next, I look at reasons behind the increase in such conditions, including the role of the COVID-19 pandemic."
