With just over 3 months until Children’s Mental Health Week 2022, we're excited to release our free resources to help everyone get involved.
For this year’s theme Growing Together, Place2Be is encouraging children (and adults) to consider how they have grown, and how they can help others to grow.
Around five children in every classroom have a 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 get involved and help us reach as many people as possible.
Free resources for schools
Free primary and secondary resources are now available, including assembly guides, slides, group activities, fundraising ideas and more to help schools and youth groups explore the theme of Growing Together.
Later this term, we'll also share Welsh language resources for schools and families in Wales. Sign up for email alerts to be the first to know when these are available.
Free resources for parents and carers
Parents and carers play an important role in their child’s mental health. We've shared some top tips and activity ideas to help you and your family take part in the week.
Dress to Express
Help us to make this year’s Children’s Mental Health Week the biggest and best yet, by organising a Dress to Express fundraiser. The idea is simple – use colour to express yourself during the week by wearing a colourful outfit and donating £2 to Place2Be.
Download our free fundraising pack to find out how your school, organisation, friends and family can get involved, and help raise vital funds for children’s mental health.
Spread the word
We'd love your support to help us spread the word and raise awareness of the importance of children's mental health. Download our free social media guide with template posts, downloadable images and more ideas to inspire you.
