Learning about Children’s Mental Health through Film
Nip in the Bud works with mental health professionals to produce short films and fact sheets to help parents, primary school teachers and others caring for and working with children to recognise potential mental health conditions. The goal is to increase the prospects of early intervention and to reduce the risks of those conditions becoming more serious in later years.
Our films cover Anxiety Disorders, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Conduct Disorder, Depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). We will continue to add more films.
Watch our films
Our films illustrate the behaviours common in different mental health conditions in children along with explanations for them, and information as to how to follow up and get help.
We also provide downloadable fact sheets explaining different conditions with information about their symptoms and advice on how to get help.

We are Nip in the Bud®
Nip in the Bud® works with mental health organisations to produce short films and other resources to assist parents, educationalists and others to learn about mental health conditions in children.
About one in ten children aged between five and sixteen are diagnosed with a mental health problem every year, and seventy five per cent of mental illness is thought to start before the age of 18.
