The majority of lifelong mental health problems develop early on, during childhood or adolescence.
What is early intervention?
Early intervention focuses on supporting children’s physical, cognitive, behavioural, and social and emotional development. This is where it can make the biggest difference and has the potential to provide benefits throughout a person’s life.
Importance of early intervention at schools
A recent study published in The Lancet found that during lockdown there was a 50% decline of diagnoses of common mental health problems, as well as a decline in first time prescriptions for those problems when compared to last year - as the public avoided contact with their GPs. This decline has led to fears of that lockdown hid emerging or historic mental health conditions behind closed doors.
