Place2Be launched the first ever Children’s Mental Health Week in 2015 to support children and young people’s mental health and emotional wellbeing. Now in its fourth year, we hope to encourage more people than ever to get involved and spread the word.
Check back in Autumn for updates on Children's Mental Health Week 2019.
Some children and young people can find it difficult to think positively about themselves. Low self-esteem affects more than 8 in 10 of the pupils who have Place2Be one-to-one support.
That’s why for Children’s Mental Health Week 2018 we highlighted the importance of ‘Being Ourselves’. Place2Be invited everyone – children, young people and adults – to come together and celebrate the unique qualities and strengths in themselves and others.
When we have a positive view of ourselves, it can help us to cope with life’s challenges and make better connections with others.
At the same time, celebrating the unique strengths of the people around us can enable us to come together in our schools, workplaces and communities.
