Podcast: Why children's health should be a priority for mayors

Theo Michaels

Ahead of the Mayoral elections on May 2, we examine why children's health should be a priority for all the candidates - particularly those in London. 

Hannah Brinsden, our Head of Policy and Advocacy, explains the link between poverty and mental health in the capital, where one in five children between eight and 16 have reported mental health problems.

We also hear from Kandra Abdinasir from the Centre for Mental Health and Ruth Fitzharris from for Mums for Lungs. The episode is presented by TV chef and author Theo Michaels.
