About Children’s Mental Health Week

Children’s Mental Health Week 2024 took place from 5-11 February. Place2Be launched the mental health awareness week in 2015 to empower, equip and give a voice to every child in the UK.

Now in its 10th year, we hope to encourage more people than ever to help us reach our goal that no child or young person has to face a mental health problem alone. Each year, we create free resources for schools and families so that as many people as possible can take part. 

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

This year's theme is 'My Voice Matters'

During Children’s Mental Health Week we want all children and young people, whoever they are, and wherever they are in the world, to be able to say – and believe - “My Voice Matters”.

My Voice Matters is about empowering children and young people by providing them with the tools they need to express themselves.

When we feel empowered, this can have a positive impact on our wellbeing. Children and young people who feel that their voices are heard and can make a difference have a greater sense of community and self-esteem. This year, we want children of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to be empowered to work together to create a positive change for their mental health and wellbeing.

During Children’s Mental Health Week we want all children and young people, whoever they are, and wherever they are in the world, to be able to say – and believe - “My Voice Matters”.
