Join Place2Be, schools, organisations and communities across the UK as we raise awareness of the importance of children and young people’s mental health.
The theme of this year’s Children’s Mental Health Week is Express Yourself.
Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. It is about finding a way to show who you are, and how you see the world, that can help you feel good about yourself.
Parents and carers play an important role in their child’s mental health. Check out Place2Be’s free resources here.
