Children’s Mental Health Week is an opportunity to shine a light on the importance of children and young people’s mental health.
1 in 6 children and young people have a diagnosable mental health problem. Many more struggle with challenges from bullying to bereavement.
I had the opportunity to meet with Place2Be, who provide counselling to children in schools across the UK. It was fantastic to hear they are currently operating in 12 schools in South Wales and for every £1 spent on the service, it generates £6.20 back!
I was also pleased to see the latest Department for Education’s report, which shows that children and young people’s well-being is gradually improving as we begin to emerge from the pandemic.
We must look after the mental health and wellbeing of our children to ensure they have the best experiences growing up.
