Multiple groups voiced support of the committee's conclusions.

Launched earlier this week, "BeKind2TheMind", is a mental health initiative created to raise awareness of mental illness as well as "educate our community about the need for increased public investment in mental health resources and, most importantly, encourage people to be part of the solution", according to its website. Half of all mental health conditions first occur by the age of 14 and it is estimated that one in ten of our children between the ages of five and 15 are affected by a mental health problem.

We recommend that the Government target funding for mental health support into areas of social disadvantage and inequality. "We also know that treating these disorders is a key factor in reducing the health care costs of our nation".

Since the facility opened, many youth have been dropping in to seek services in everything from employment to a whole range of health-care services, said Dale Handley, manager for VCH's North Shore Youth Mental Health and Substance Use program that operates at Foundry and other facilities.

Living a healthy lifestyle may not be easy, but by looking at your overall health every day - both physically and mentally - you can go a long way in ensuring that you focus on your Fitness #4Mind4Body.

This year's Mental Health Awareness Week, which begins on Monday (May 14), focuses on stress.

The Children's Society has responded to the Education and Health and Social Care Committees' report on the Government's Green Paper on Child Mental Health. "We really believe that nature and everything about nature is very important when we talk about mental health", said Dawn Wemigwans, principal at St. David's Catholic Elementary.

But as well as moving faster, ministers must go further. We have long argued that such centres provide a vital service to children and families, and we hope that as the government looks to move forward with its work on children's mental health, it will recognise the crucial role that children's centres play by providing proper clarity over their future'.

'We also welcome the committee's recognition of the importance of children's centres in supporting children's emotional well-being. "And there are many unanswered questions about how the mental health support teams envisaged in the Green Paper would work", he added.

Now the chief executive of the NSPCC, Peter Wanless, has written to the Prime Minister to urge her to act, citing the NSPCC's own research that showed the equivalent of 150 children a day were being turned away from child mental health services under current provisions.

"As a starting point, we want to see councils and schools given the funding to offer independent mental health counselling so pupils have access to support as and when they need it", he said.

Published today, the cross-party report said the interests of children and young people should be at the heart of services and there should be an emphasis on early prevention of childhood mental health issues.
