Children’s Mental Health Week - 5 to 11 February 2024

Children’s Mental Health Week, from 5 to 11 February, is celebrating its 10th year and organisers hope to encourage more people than ever to support the campaign to ensure no child or young person has to face a mental health problem alone.

This year's theme is ‘My Voice Matters’. Place2Be wants to empower children and young people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to work together to create a positive change for their mental health and wellbeing.
