Children's Mental Health Week - A View From the Front Line

As a soon to be dad, I'm filled with all the anxieties that most parents face two months before their baby arrives, but with one added caveat - will I be 'good enough'? Most people probably think along these lines but in my case it comes with the added pressure of knowing many of the pitfalls, trials and tribulations related to children's mental health. The one thing that reassures me is knowing that I have learnt more about child well-being from my parents, and those around me, than years of training.
