It is clear that looking after our mental health needs to start at a young age.

The campaign by Samaritans Cymru to teach mandatory lessons in emotional and mental health in schools is very important and I am pleased to see it implemented in a number of schools.

I was proud to attend the official opening of the new Minor Injuries unit at the Royal Gwent Hospital with Cabinet Secretary for Health Vaughan Gething.

Since opening on 23rd December, the unit has seen over 17,000 patients, reduced waiting times for people at A&E and made a huge difference to patients and staff.

The Neo-Natal unit has also re-opened following some state-of-the-art refurbishment. The new unit has far more space for staff to work in, and for families to spend time with each other at what can be a difficult time. I'm incredibly proud that the mortality rate at the Royal Gwent hospital has been consistently lower than the UK average for several years, and grateful to all the hardworking staff that make this possible.

I received disappointing response from BBC Radio Wales (see below) about the changes to coverage of Newport County AFC matches. 

Following the BBC's recent decision to limit the coverage of our games, I contacted the editor of BBC Radio Wales on 7th August to raise the concerns of many people in Newport. You can read the full response below.

I don't think this decision is fair to Newport County fans and I'll continue to press the BBC on the importance of broadcasting County games.

Recently I signed a pledge to help end youth homelessness in Wales and today an extra £2.1 million has been awarded by the Cabinet Secretary to help make this a reality. 

People deserve a safe, warm and secure home and I am proud that the Welsh Government are making this a key priority. In addition to the £8 million funded through the Homelessness Prevention Programme and £6 million allocated to local authorities, this money has the potential to make a real difference to people's lives.
