Children’s Mental Health Week 2022 – Growing Together
Children’s Mental Health Week is run by children’s mental health charity PlaceBe to focus on the importance of looking after our emotional wellbeing from an early age.
This year’s theme is ‘GROWING TOGETHER‘
Growing Together is about growing emotionally and finding ways to help each other grow. Challenges and setbacks can help us to grow and adapt and trying new things can help us to move beyond our comfort zone into a new realm of possibility and potential. However, emotional growth is often a gradual process that happens over time, and sometimes we might feel a bit ‘stuck’.
For Children’s Mental Health Week 2022, we will be encouraging children (and adults) to consider how they have grown and how they can help others to grow.
Place2Be is the UK’s leading provider of school-based mental health support. We launched the first Children’s Mental Health Week in 2015 to shine a spotlight on the importance of children and young people’s mental health. Now in its 8th year, we hope to encourage more people than ever to get involved and spread the word. You can find out more about the week, and Place2Be, on the Children’s Mental Health Week website.
1 in 6 children and young people have a diagnosable mental health problem and many more struggle with challenges from bullying to bereavement. Whether you’re someone who works with children, a parent or carer, passionate about spreading the word, or keen to raise vital funds for Place2Be, you can help us reach as many people as possible.
