Mind Your Head: Cat Clarke and Keith Gray
Fri 21 October 2016, 15:30 – 16:30 BST
The mental health of children and young people has made numerous headlines this year, with reports of a huge increase in the number of children being prescribed anti-depressants, and of schools and NHS services struggling to cope.
In this timely conversation, author Keith Gray (author of Ostrich Boys, and editor of Next? and Losing It, in which leading teen authors address the big issues) will join fellow YA author Cat Clarke (writer of Torn, Entangled and The Lost and the Found) for a frank discussion about the difficulties faced by young people today. Chaired by therapist and former Scotsman columnist Claire Black.
