Children's Mental Health Week

1-7 February 2021

https://www.childrensmentalhealthweek.org.uk/

Children's Mental Health Week is taking place on 1-7 February 2021. This year's theme is Express Yourself.

As we know, by talking openly about mental health from a young age, children can learn to better understand their emotions, break down stigma, and feel safe enough to reach out for help when it’s needed. Access various resources from Place 2 Be and Anna Freud to help children, staff and parents start the mental health conversation.
