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.

Sleep Scotland’s free Sleep Support Line provides on-the-spot guidance to parents and guardians struggling with their children’s and teenagers’ sleep problems. This includes, but is not limited to, mainstream, or typically developing, children and teenagers, who previously could not access our services. The line gives all families across Scotland access to free support from Sleep Scotland’s experienced sleep counsellors, thanks to a grant from The Big Lottery Fund Scotland. Parents and carers will be able to seek tailored advice on sleep for their children, from sleepless toddlers to teenagers dealing with exam-stress and the distractions of social media.
More and more schoolchildren are struggling to cope with their mental health. Amidst rising rates of depression, anxiety and self-harm in children and young people, we are launching our new Make it Count campaign, because mental health is not extracurricular.
Good mental health is fundamental to be able to thrive in life. If we’re not tackling mental health problems early, then we risk failing the next generation right at the start of their lives.
Information for parents and carers
We are drafting text that colleagues can use when communicating with parents and carers about RSHP learning. Our intention is to provide draft text for each Curriculum for Excellence Level. We would like to see what you already provide, this could be across Levels or aimed at a specific year group. Do you have leaflets or presentations that you could share? These will be treated in confidence. You could also just tell us what would be really helpful. Send us an email with any attachments or weblinks: email@example.com
Your favourite books
We are compiling lists of recommended books for your class, school or centre library. We want to hear from you about what you already provide and what you know the children, young people and parents/carers love to borrow, hear or read that supports RSHP learning. Send us an email or weblinks: firstname.lastname@example.org
Early Level learning
So far, this Level has only been populated with the topics or themes that we want to consider when it comes to RSHP learning. We want to think about the learning at this Level in a different way from the ‘learning activity’ model we have used at other Levels. If you have any material, programmes, resources or anything else that currently supports your work at Early Level, please let us know. Again, your contributions will be treated with confidence and we are happy to credit any sources where appropriate. In advance, thank you! Send us an email, weblinks, etc: email@example.com
