Supporting brain health in children to help them cope with exam stress


Further Information

The pressure some children are under to do well on exams is having a big impact on their mental health and wellbeing. Calls to Childline about exam stress has risen 21% over the last two years. The entire exam process creates an extra burden on children and I want to teach their parents that there are many things that can be done through nutrition and lifestyle that will help them be more resilient in the face of exam stress. Having a child with a psychiatric autoimmune illness (PANDAS), I have firsthand experience about dealing with anxiety and learning difficulties in children, as well as experience in the protocols needed to bring children's health back to balance.
