Children's Mental Health Week

Thursday 10 February 2022

This week, we’re supporting Children's Mental Health Week.

Did you know?

  • 1 in 6 children and young people have a diagnosable mental health condition.
  • 50% of those with lifetime mental health problems first experience symptoms by the age of 14.

No one should have to face mental health problems on their own.

If you're a child or young person
If you're a parent or guardian
  • If you're a parent or guardian with concerns about a young person's mental well-being, the Young Minds Parents Helpline can provide free detailed advice, emotional support and signposting about a child or young person up to the age of 25. Call 0808 802 5544 from 9.30am-4pm, Monday-Friday.
  • If you need to talk to someone, text CONNECT to 85258 to speak to one of Shout's trained volunteers, which is available 24/7.
  • Find lots of useful tips for supporting your child's mental health on the Place2Be website.
