I was disappointed to read this article in stuff.co.nz about seclusion practices in children’s mental health in Christchurch. The article focuses more on condemnation rather than finding better solutions. The subtext being that child mental health workers don’t know any better.

Menshealth have written a great primer on mental health in men and have promised to cover a number of articles during May that explore this theme. Great to see examples of well-known people speaking up about their personal battles. Silence is the killer.
