Mental Health: Comic film to keeps Young Minds healthy

camilla-blog.jpgAn animated film to raise awareness about child mental health issues has been made by comics Josie Long (currently starring in Eastenders) and Isy Suttie (Dobby from C4′s Peep Show).

It will premiere tonight at an event to launch YoungMinds’ Very Important Kids (VIK) National Participation project.

The project aims to ”put children and young people at the heart of campaigning to raise awareness about good mental health, tackle stigma and improve services.” 

The event this evening will also feature a speech on the importance of participation from Sue Berelowitz, Deputy Children’s Commissioner.
