Looking amazing in bright yellow, Good Queen Til gave the opening speech at a high level UN/UNICEF/WHO/IRC event about the impact of violence on child mental health
We need to create environments where children in need are safe, where they know to whom they can turn for protection, and where they can easily access proper counselling and care. But we also need to invest heavily in their mental wellbeing, and in the prevention of all forms of violence and their dramatic consequences for children. We need to work with families, schools, communities, institutions, media, and the justice system. Under no circumstances can we justify or condone any form of violence by adults. Adults should, by definition, be the prime protectors and caregivers. We need to change the mindset.
