Children’s Mental Health Week took place from 5-11 February 2024.

Children's Mental Health Week is a mental health awareness week that empowers, equips and gives a voice to all children and young people in the UK. 

We hope you enjoyed getting involved in Children's Mental Health Week and our 2024 theme, "My Voice Matters". Whether you held an Express Yourself day, used an assembly plan or got involved with our resources and videos, we've loved seeing how everyone took part.

If you raised money during Children's Mental Health Week, you can pay in your fundraising on our website.
