This week is Children’s Mental Health Week (6-12 February), which aims to shine a spotlight on the importance of children and young people’s mental health.
The theme this year is Let’s Connect, and the event’s organisers, Place2Be, are encouraging people to connect with others in healthy, rewarding and meaningful ways.
Place2Be have lots of free resources to help people participate in the week – from activity ideas and assembly guides to top tips and videos, all of which will help you explore mental health and wellbeing with the children and young people around you.
