At The Front Line Of Translational Research And Psychiatry Profile – Julio Lucinio Talking Point: Mental health starts in childhood Children are best not left alone to deal with their mental health issues. Picture: GETTY Source: Getty Images FOR many people in the community, mental health is not readily associated with young children. But good mental health in early childhood lays the foundation for positive mental health and wellbeing now and into the future. Being mentally healthy is vital for learning and for leading a happy, rewarding life. Keeping children healthy and happy involves looking after their mental health as well as their physical health. The ancient Romans said “Mens sana in corpore sano”, which means a healthy mind in a healthy body. And that is critical for children — influencing how children feel about themselves, what they do, what they think, and how they relate to others. Good mental health helps children form positive relationships with others, cope with the ups and downs of life, and generally enjoy their world. Evidence also suggests half of all mental health problems begin before the age of 14.
Shared ownership comes with risks – here's what to watch out for | Housing Network With home ownership now unaffordable for many people on low or middle incomes shared ownership continues to be pushed. Being a cheaper upfront option, it is touted as a way for Generation Rent to move forward. After the deposit, it means paying a mix of mortgage repayments and rent for the remaining price of the property. However, shared ownership schemes are not without their risks, which are not necessarily clear at the beginning and not always explained by landlords or conveyancing solicitors. As shared ownership week gets under way in the UK, here are some of the issues that people considering shared ownership should be aware of: You don’t actually own anything (yet) Unless you have bought further shares in the property (a process known as “staircasing”) up to the full 100% share, a shared ownership lease actually amounts to an assured tenancy for the term of the lease. You will need to pay service charges Increasing your shares can be tricky Repair work can fall through the gaps

domain.com Australians could soon be able to build their own home in just a few days thanks to a flat-packed, off-grid house that could be the solution to housing sustainability and affordability. The tiny home, which measures 13.75 square metres, arrives on the back of a trailer and can be put together by inexperienced builders using just a hammer and a drill. Founder and architect Alexander Symes said the portable property, which he has described as “Ikea on steroids”, could act as a transitional housing product that bridges the gap between renting and home ownership. Australia’s first flat-packed, off-grid tiny home is affordable and rethinks the way people live.

How to live in a steel box | Blue Mountains Gazette NSW: Newcastle designer Sean McGilvray unveils rapid shipping container conversion. STEADY HAND: Sean McGilvray demonstrating how to modify a used shipping container. NEWCASTLE designer Sean McGilvray insists he is not mad. The savvy innovator declares he knows a way to simultaneously convert a big steel box into a house within weeks, cut down on dreadful waste, improve housing affordability and – the clincher – he can teach the masses to do it too. “I believe in what I’ve done,” Mr McGilvray said after a building demonstration in Carrington on Friday. “I truly believe this is going to help a lot of people.” Mr McGilvray set about the “extremely difficult” task of converting used shipping containers into homes about two years ago. While admitting shipping container conversion was not a new concept, Mr McGilvray said he had reinvented the construction process, making it more practical, even to the point where the rapid-build design could be rolled out in natural disasters. 1 of 5
