How To Protect A Child's Mental Health

 A Handbook For Educators, Parents & Carers

We sincerely hope that you enjoy reading this book and get a lot from the information contained in it

It is NOT a book about mental health problems, symptoms and cures.
It is NOT a book about children's mental health.
It IS a book about the causes of mental health problems and ways to avoid the things that can lead to addictions and mental illnesses.

It is a practical handbook written by Trevor and Annie Boulton, the founders of The Brain Health Education Institute to show people how simple things can adversely affect our brain function, thinking and behaviour. It references the 1943 ‘Maslow’s Hierarchy of Human Needs’ and demonstrates that, if and when these needs are not met, the ability to attain optimum mental health is not possible.

The book is a result of many lifetimes of conversations and experience walking alongside disturbed people in all walks of life.

It includes our own personal stories and is a BIG PICTURE (HOLISTIC) OVERVIEW of mental health and the things we can do to establish and maintain it.

Enjoy the book!

Deputy Prime Minister of Australia

"I congratulate Trevor and Annie Boulton for their efforts.
Mental Health is essential to personal wellbeing, family and interpersonal relationships and the ability to contribute to community and society". 

Queensland Minister For Health

Medicare Local

"Trevor and Annie have been educating young people in schools and the wider community about mental illness for many years and produced the 'Toxic Thinking Apps' which have been downloaded many tens of thousands of times across the world".

St James Lutheran College

"The information has helped not only arm our students with the basics of mental health care but we as teachers are better equipped to notice key issues that arise from our day to day work with adolescents.  I therefore, thoroughly endorse the work that Trevor and Annie Boulton are doing and the importance of training the next generation in the principles of holistic mental health".
Mark Payne
