Children’s Mental Health Week 2022
7-13 February 2022
The theme of this year's Children’s Mental Health Week is Growing Together.
Growing Together is about growing emotionally and finding ways to help each other grow. Challenges and setbacks can help us to grow and adapt and trying new things can help us to move beyond our comfort zone into a new realm of possibility and potential. However, emotional growth is often a gradual process that happens over time, and sometimes we might feel a bit ‘stuck’.
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 s 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.
