Mental Health and Wellbeing
Children’s Mental Health Awareness week takes place this year from 7th – 13th February and this year’s theme is ‘Growing Together’.
During this week, we can look at ways to help each other grow emotionally. Emotional growth is often a gradual process that happens over time.
Over the last two years, more than ever, we have been seeing children struggle with lock-down and the implications of covid. It has been a very unsettling time for children, and they can sometimes feel overwhelmed, but they often find it difficult to articulate their feelings.
There are a lot of very informative and helpful websites for children and their parents to help them with their mental health and wellbeing. Please find below a list of useful websites:
Place2Be is a children’s mental health charity offering support and advice
Works in collaboration with children and their families and mental health professionals on mental health issues
