?  About our Ebooks


'A sea change is underway, and this exciting new book both rides that wave, and offers an exciting vision of how things may progress. It invites us, as a society, to consider what it would mean to have a model of child services designed to help children to grow up to have greater psychological wellbeing, rather than directing the majority of resources to trying to help after things have gone wrong. Using clear language, evidence from research and specific examples of best practice, this book is certain to become one of those volumes that defines an era, both capturing the zeitgeist and offering inspiring visions of what the future might look like.'
- Dr Nick Midgley, Child Attachment and Psychological Therapies Research Unit (ChAPTRe), UCL and the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families

'Timely and thought-provoking. Firmly situates an understanding of mental health in the broader social, economic and policy context, providing excellent case studies and examples of current good practice. Important reading for anyone with an interest in how to effectively support the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people.'
- Dr Helen Drew, Research Fellow, School of Psychology, University of Sussex

'This is the best and most concise summary of the facts around children and young people's mental health. It is a plain-speaking, accessible account that presents findings with solutions objectively but leaves the reader wondering why have we waited so long to give pediatric mental health the priority it merits. It is an extraordinarily helpful monograph for professionals, service planners, policymakers and the public.'
