Now I am working in a Child and Adolescent Service I am drawn, more than ever, to aspects of prevention of mental health illness.

Perhaps, more than any other area, child and adolescent mental health should be protected and resourced with a special focus on prevention. To do so makes sense. The more we can prevent mental ill health developing the less likely are we to create life long suffering and dependence on much stretched services.

There is plenty of interesting research out there but recently I received articles on folic acid and sever mental ill health:

My interest with social media and facilitating mental health drew me to this research. I am working on a package that is bang in line with the Draft NICE Guidelines on Depression:
