6: Teenager’s & Mental Health

Series 2 Episode 6

In this episode I talk to the fantastic Dr Lucy Russell, Clinical Psychologist and specialist in children and adolescents about teenage mental health. A real insight into the inner workings of the teenage brain and behaviour!

We talk:

  • The impact of the Covid 19 Pandemic on teenager’s emotional and physical wellbeing
  • Knowing your child and what’s underneath the ‘everyday’ presentation
  • The importance of diet and exercise for mental wellbeing
  • The importance of sleep and the “bedtime runway”
  • How to spend time with your teenager through “micro moments”
  • Informal support at home and more formal support options for teenage mental health.
