Children's Mental Health Week 2022

Children's Mental Health Week

Children's Mental Health Week is taking place between 7th-13th February 2022.

This year's theme is Growing Together. We will be encouraging children (and adults) to consider how they have grown, and how they can help others to grow. Find out more on the Children's Mental Health Week campaign website.
