How fishing is providing an upstream solution to mental health - TEDx talk by Alison Knowles
Ali, once again, delivered an emotional talk on how we can help our children and young adults become all they can be. Ali has an ability to touch us all with how she explains what each of us can do to make a difference now rather than wait until its too late.
Along with other speakers on the day, Ali brought to light the need for improved listening, communication, and understanding within the services offered by the current mental health provision.
Follow Ollie - Don't be put in a box
The resounding message was that we are all individuals and therefore we must be treated as such and not put into a 'box' that doesn't fit us. When working with children we need to allow them to be who they are rather than categorise them as the same as another.
