Sheldon Press is delighted to be publishing Mental Health in Children and Young People, written by specialist psychiatrist Dr Sarah Vohra, is a practical guide to empower parents and carers spot mental illness in young people early.
‘Gut instinct is the most undervalued tool we own. Some parental anxiety is natural, but if you think something’s wrong, trust your instinct. Don’t ignore it or try to justify worrying behaviour as normal ups and downs.’
Mental health difficulties affect approximately 1 in 10 children and young people ranging from fears, phobias and panic attacks to obsessions, compulsions and even psychosis. However, many parents feel ill-equipped and out of their depth when it comes to knowing the best way to recognise and address such concerns.
This comprehensive book highlights the often subtle warning signs of trouble and suggests tactful, effective ways to take action, whether your child is 6 or 16.
