Growing together. Join us for children’s mental health week 2022
Date 28th Jan 2022
It may be Children’s Mental Health Week from 7th - 13 February, but here at OLT we believe it’s essential to provide support for children’s mental health all year round. A massive 1 in 6 children and young people are reported to have a diagnosable mental health problem, and without help, many continue to struggle with these problems into adulthood.
The theme of this year’s Children’s Mental Health Week is ‘Growing Together’ and this year’s theme aims to encourage children and young people to explore how they’ve grown emotionally, what they need to help them grow and how they can help others to grow too.
Free resources for parents and carers are available from the charity Place2Be, to help you take part and many of the ideas can be adapted for use in school, at home, online lessons or independent learning.
