This is a difficult time to be raising children, and many experts are now saying we have created an unrealistic environment for our children. Academic Pressure, Electronic Devices, Cyber Bullying, Stress, Worry, Anxiety and Insomnia are just a few of the alarming words that are now commonplace in our children’s lives.
Unfortunately, as we speak depression rates are on the increase, suicide rates are also going up and kids are starting to suffer from anxiety and depression at a younger and younger age. Just a few decades ago the average onset age of depression was 29.5 years old. Today it is almost exactly half that: 14.5 years old.
Focus on younger people is now vital to intervene and create positive habits as early as possible.
Unfortunately, only one out of every four young persons with mental health problems receives professional health care. Even among young people with the most severe mental health problems, only 50 per cent receive professional help. Parents reported that help was too expensive, they didn’t know where to get it, or they felt there was a stigma attached to seeing a Child Psychologist or Psychiatrist.
In the last few years Mindfulness and Meditation have emerged as an effective ways to teach children resilience, awareness and self-belief and, how to manage their own Mental Health, Happiness and a range of Emotional Challenges in their day to day lives.
Helping children relax and focus better so that they can concentrate and memorise more effectively at school, as well as still their minds and breathe correctly to assist with sleep, worry and unhelpful thoughts, leading to a happier state of mind and a feeling of more content with life.
