Children's Mental Health Week

Children's Mental Health Week

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’.

As parents and carers, you play an important role in your child’s mental health. Check out our free resources for families.

Top Tips Guide - Helpful tips for you and your children, to help you think about the different ways we can grow.

My Changing Shapes - This activity supports young people to look back at their past growth.
