Lucy’s in Lockdown

Lucy is like many other children in the world right now: in quarantine with her family.

Her hair is blue, but this time she knows why.

This FREE eBook is designed to help children realise they’re not alone in the current conditions with Covid-19, to help them understand it’s temporary and to help them express how they’re feeling.

It’s “okay, sometimes, to have a blue day.”

BBC Hardtalk – Mental Health

Mental health is not easy to talk about, least of all for young men, so often brought up to regard emotional vulnerability as weakness.

In a special edition of BBC HARDtalk, Stephen Sackur speaks to Stephen Manderson – better known as British rapper Professor Green.  In the interview he has been very honest about his own struggles with mental health and is determined to break the taboos around the subject.

Can we all learn from Professor Green?
