Does your child throw embarrassing temper tantrums in public? Are you worried about your best friend who has become preoccupied with food, yet skips meals? Is there a child in your class who seems to have no concentration and is always causing trouble? These factsheets may be able to help. These short, simply written and easily understandable information sheets offer parents, teachers and young people practical and up-to-date information on what you can do if you are worried about your child, a pupil or a friend. There are forty-six different factsheets covering a wide range of emotional, behavioural and mental health problems that often affect children and young people. Each factsheet explains what the problem might be, the possible causes and effects, gives tips to help you deal with it, outlines the treatments available, gives the best available evidence, and shows how and where to get help and further information.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Clearly written and visually appealing, the book uses language appropriate for its intended audience, and contains a great deal of practical information and resources." - Nursing Standard "This book of photocopy-ready factsheets...will be extremely useful for anyone working with young people or their families. It provides a wealth of evidence-based information, which is difficult to find in a single resource elsewhere. I know my copy will receive a great deal of use." - GP Pulse "From cover to cover it is well laid out, simple, signposted, consistent and fit for purpose. That purpose is to provide information to allay fears and reassure young people and their families that the symptoms they are experiencing can be explained and helped. ...I can't imagine any child and adolescent mental health service, GP surgery or social care service not being able to make use of this book. I am usually sceptical of these type of all-inclusive books but I can't see anything not to like about this one." - Mental Health Practice "The fourth edition...is one of those delightful revisions which seem to reassert its value in the same way a new publication would. For GBP20, the reader receives 46 factsheets which are crying out to be photocopied and distributed." - The Psychiatrist "A good resource to give to pastoral staff who would like quick answers to the many questions they may have about the many mental health issues they may face ... a good reference material to have in school to give to parents, teachers and some young people." - Special (Journal of the National Association for Special Educational Needs)
