Children’s Mental Health Week

It is Children’s Mental Health Week this week 7th – 13th Feb

The theme of Growing Together encourages children (and adults) to consider how they have grown, and how they can help others to grow.

Run by the charity Place2Be, the website contains a range of free resources. This includes a section for parents and carers containing stories and tips for both adults and children.

  • Be aware of why and when difficulties can arise and what to look out for
  • Know how to help your child if they are struggling
  • Know when and how to get professional help
