We are Nip in the Bud®
Nip in the Bud® works with mental health professionals of the highest standing to produce FREE short evidence-based films and fact sheets to help parents, educationalists and others working with children to recognise potential mental health conditions. The goal is to increase the prospects of early intervention and to avoid those conditions becoming more serious in later years.
Learning about Children’s Mental Health through Film
Nip in the Bud is regularly adding new FREE resources – short films and fact sheets – to raise mental health awareness among primary school staff, teacher trainees, anyone working with children, parents, carers and young people.
Early intervention is key, so the negative impacts of these conditions can be ‘nipped in the bud’ and so reduce the risk of them becoming entrenched. Our films cover Expert Information on different conditions, Real Life Experience, Emotional Wellbeing and Coping with the Aftermath of Covid.

Understanding reasonable adjustments at school
In this blog we explore what it means to make reasonable adjustments at school, and how to ask for support if a child’s needs aren’t being met.
Support for fathers of children with additional needs
In this blog we talk to Michael Charles, who runs a Dads Group in Gwent for parents of children with additional needs. He works for NHS Wales Children with Additional Needs Service and is a father of four.
