Children's Mental Health Week: 1st - 7th February
The first week in February is Children's Mental Health Week, a chance for us to think about how we can support each others' mental health and wellbeing during this difficult time. In the video below, HRH the Duchess of Cambridge explains more and if you visit the Children's Mental Health Week website, you will find a range of activities and information. The parents/carers' page is particularly useful, providing a wealth of resources to help support your child's wellbeing.
This is a strange and confusing time and there might be things you are worrying about. If so, tell an adult, it always helps to talk. On this page of our website we will share stories, links and activities that might help you with those worries too. At the bottom of the page you will see some details of helplines you can get in touch with at any time and there is a leaflet full of useful resources for you and your parents/carers called 'Coronavirus mental health and wellbeing resources'.
