Children’s Mental Health Week – 7th – 13th February

Next week is Children’s Mental Health Week. It is run by children’s mental health charity to focus on the importance of
looking after our emotional wellbeing from an early age. This year’s theme is ‘Growing Together’.


Human beings change and grow – we do it all the time and in many different ways. Physical growth is easy to see as
we grow from babies to children, teenagers to adults. We grow intellectually as we gain new knowledge, skills, and
understanding at school, and beyond. is about growing emotionally, and finding ways to help each
other grow.

For Children’s Mental Health Week 2022, Place2Be is encouraging children (and adults) to consider how they have
grown, what they need to help them grow, and how they can help others to grow too.
