Greg Rutherford learns about children and their mental health All In The Same Boat?

    • Society & Culture

“Behind the locked doors of the nation lurks an invisible menace – one where there is no test like there is for COVID-19." 

This episode focuses on the mental health of children and young people.  In a world that seemed to be creating a myriad of problems for children’s wellbeing even before the pandemic, how big is the problem now?  How is it manifesting itself? Are we really facing a crisis?

Join celebrity host and Olympic Gold medallist Greg Rutherford as he explores this important subject with Joanna Holmes, from the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and Joseph Howes, CEO of children’s grant giving charity Buttle UK.

Greg, Joanna and Joe consider a wide range of issues including the link between children’s mental health problems and poverty; the impact of the pandemic and lockdowns and the role schools and parents can play in supporting children to recover.
