Rehab 4 Addiction

Since its first-ever week in 2015, Children’s Mental Health Week has reached more people than ever.

Join Place2Be in their eighth year of promoting the importance of young people’s and children’s mental health.

Everyone can get involved this year between 7th to 13th February, whether you are part of an organisation, youth group, school, or an individual.

Join the nation in spreading the word about the necessity of looking after the mental health of children and young people.

Growing Together; this Year’s Theme

Growing Together is the perfect theme for Children’s Mental Health Week 2022. Why? Because emotional and mental growth is vital to better mental health.

Children and adults alike often face life’s harshest obstacles and trials. But events that challenge us can help us grow.

Even better, life allows us to step out of our comfort zone and learn new things about ourselves and the world when we try new things.

But emotional growth is an ongoing process, especially when we feel stunted in our emotional growth.

To combat this, Place2Be is encouraging everyone to think about how we have grown and how we can inspire others to grow for Children’s Mental Health Week 2022.

Getting Involved with Children’s Mental Health Week

Check out the many free resources on the Children’s Mental Health Week website that will help you take part.

There are plenty of ideas online for you to get involved, all of which can be adapted for use in school, independent learning, online lessons, or home-schooling.

Importance of Children’s Mental Health Week

You don’t have to be a parent yourself to get involved with Children’s Mental Health Week.

With 1 in 6 children and young people struggling with daily issues like divorce, bereavement, bullying, and suffering diagnosable mental health problems, they need adults in their corner.

As a children’s mental health charity, Place2Be began the Children’s Mental Health Week to spread the word about children’s mental health.

Whether you’re a parent, carer, childcare worker, or just an advocate or keen fundraiser, everyone can help so that children don’t have to face mental health problems alone.

To raise awareness of Children’s Mental Health Week, we have designed an infographic.

We hope you enjoy reading the infographic, and we hope it helps to raise awareness around this important subject:
