When so many of the different challenges facing children and young people intersect with mental health, there are no easy answers. If we're going to rise to what is arguably the definitive challenge of our time, we will need a cross-sector, whole society approach to tackling it.

There are approximately one in four people like me, also living life with a chronic, invisible illness or chronic pain. Some of them are too ill to work at all, and may have to rely on benefits, or the financial support of their loved ones.

The Intense Pressure Of Ruthlessly Packing Your Bags At Aldi

The mayonnaise was hurled in the same bag as the ibuprofen, crushing the weak and vulnerable brioche buns in the process. The bread was bullied in to the bottom of another bag, resulting in the loaf being squashed and killed in action by the carrots and cheaply priced duck breasts. And the milk was required to share a bag with mouthwash and garden bin-liners. Complete mayhem.

The Manchester Evening News ran an update on my journey this week. It amazes me how comfy I have become being interviewed, hopefully finding the right thing to say so I don't sound like a jibbering wreck and that people might find my story engaging and that it hits a chord with them.

I picked him up at Swansea station, he came in for a hug and as he always laughs, I jumped back. The reason I jumped was because I felt something I hadn't felt before, my body lit up, it felt like sparks were flying through me, that thunder bolt when two souls re-connect - it's true people!

Being Ill May Just Have Made Me A Better Person

I am terrible at asking for help. If one of the seven deadly sins gets us all in the end, I know already that mine will be pride. I will paint a smile on my face and struggle through every last ounce of my energy reserves before admitting defeat and asking for help. Even there, I have let slip what that means to me: help equals some sort of failure.

My Teenage Diary: Part Two

Lucy Jones

My blog is a heartfelt tribute to the innocence of youth. At 16 I was an ingenue and a hopeless romantic. I was always in love. I loved with abandon, in great quantities and with huge generosity. But it was always unrequited and boyfriends persistently eluded me. The diary that I turned to so diligently has survived to tell the tale of one teenage girl's attempts to find true love and her place in the world.

Years later, feeling strong and positive once more, I made a conscious decision not to let the whole experience of being turned away from the Mum Club continue to get me down. I had a lightbulb moment - an idea so obvious that I instantly wondered why I'd not come up with it sooner: I'd open my own club.

Style And Substance : Five Tips For A More Sustainable Wardrobe

Wears per buy is a good way to think of it. Are you really getting value for money? Build a capsule wardrobe full of pieces that can be mixed and matched and made from quality materials that will stand the test of time. A perfectly cut organic cotton shirt or a pure virgin wool coat that will be a pleasure to wear and that you will treasure is worth so much more than five cheap tops that you'll wear once and forget about.

The internet is awash with wild tales of expat life, all the money and glamour and luxuries, but we were (and still are) entirely disinterested in becoming the stereotype. We just wanted to take a great opportunity, save a bit of cash (hopefully), and set our family up for a more secure future than the UK was able to offer us.

Scotland Is Failing Sexual Assault Victims And It's Unacceptable

Alexander Morgan

As a survivor of assault myself, I can say from first-hand experience how much courage and bravery it takes to tell someone you've been violated. You sweat buckets, struggle to draw breath, shake like an ancient Nokia as you stumble on every word - trying to figure out a way of saying what you need to without saying the "R" word.

Dear India Willoughby - Where Is Your Solidarity ?

Rebecca Fox

I'd rather not be associated with you as a trans woman if this is your feelings towards my friends and, in my trans history, towards me. The confidence I took from exploring my own gender identity would not have been possible if your version of the "transgender police" came into force.

Born To Be Mild

Someone's always telling you what you ought to do. Read the papers often enough and you'll end up at once enlightened and confused. Chocolate will be part of the sugar scare one day, and will save you from strokes and heart attacks the next; red wine will give you cancer in January but save you from it in March.
