Raising happy and resilient children while thriving at work and being a supportive partner is challenging. Research tells us that one in five adults in any one year suffers from mental ill-health, most commonly anxiety or depression. Research shows that parents modelling good psychological health is one of the greatest protective factors when it comes to happy and healthy young people. Adolescents are more likely to do what you do, rather than what you say.

“Raising and educating children and adolescents
of this generation requires a new skill set.”
– Dr Michael Carr-Gregg

BBC Speaks Events are open to all parents and friends of the wider BBC Community.
