Factors Affecting Children's Mental Health Over Time

Cherylynn Wray - Monday, July 23, 2018 -

The Children's Society and Barnardos examined how factors at 10 and 11 can affect children's mental health at 14 and 15. With half of all mental health problems starting by 14, addressing problems at 10 would make an enormous difference. Children with poor family relationships aged 10 are far more likely to have mental health problems like depression and anxiety by 14. Bullying, body image and school life matter too.
