Why we need to deal with the uncomfortable issue of children’s mental health

By | Blog | No Comments
Warning: This article discuses death, suicide, violence and child abuse.


This year, in Australia, an estimated 315 babies and pre-schoolers will be diagnosed with cancer. Most of them will go in to remission, however around 25 of these children will not make it (Cancer Australia, 2016).

It is true: the numbers of children dying from cancer used to be much higher. But – largely as a result of extraordinary donations to fund research and health services – we now see many more children survive childhood cancer than dying from it. Fortunately, most of us will be spared from having to watch a child in our family or social circle battle this horrific disease.

But…despite all these advances, each little life is important. Each one matters. In the 0-4 age group, cancer robs children of their childhoods and families of their children. Childhood cancer robs us all of our future Environmental Warriors, Artists, Pioneers and Heroes. We lose so much to early childhood cancer. Twenty five little lives lost is still too many.

The question is, how do we find those final pieces of the childhood cancer jigsaw puzzle? How do we make sure the funding doesn’t dry up? How do we make sure we can keep our best scientists, doctors, and nurses working to ensure that cancer no longer poses a threat to our children?

Here is a statistic that may hide one of the missing pieces:

Noni Hazlehurst, AM, on the work of Baby in Mind

By | Blog, Member News | 2 Comments

Noni Hazlehurst, AM, is known to almost every Australian, and is loved by just as many. Children’s charity, Baby in Mind, is honoured to have Noni support our work.

For 24 years (in a 43 year career that is still going), along with a host of critically acclaimed film and TV roles, Noni came in to our lounge rooms almost every day as presenter of the ground-breaking children’s program Playschool. She taught us how to solve problems and transform the ordinary by sticking scraps together with a bit of masking tape. She sang to us, read to us, engaged us in play and – most of all – made us feel that we were OK just the way we were. She let us know we were important, that what we did, what we made and what we said mattered.
