Children’s Mental Health Week 👧🧒

4-10 February 2019
 
This year’s Children’s Mental Health Week has a focus on taking steps to be Healthy: Inside and Out.
 
Children’s Mental Health Week was established in 2015 in order to highlight the necessity to recognise when children and young people are struggling with their mental health and general emotional wellbeing.
 
Everyone endures a vast array of challenges, these can be extremely individual and it is crucial that we allow children to explore the profound impact that these experiences can have. Being open and honest, but also respecting children’s right to work through these challenges at their own pace, is key to reaching adulthood will an authentic sense of resilience that will best arm them going forward.
 
Did you know….?
20% of adolescents may experience a mental health problem in any given year.
 
50% of mental health problems are established by age 14 and 75% by age 24.
 
10% of children and young people (aged 5-16 years) have a clinically diagnosable mental problem, yet 70% of children and adolescents who experience mental health problems have not had appropriate interventions at a sufficiently early age.
 
This year our Harm to Hope conference is focused on our young people: intervention & early intervention for improved outcomes.
We are determined to keep driving change and improving the lives of young people. Learn vital skills to support young people, hear from key individuals in the field and go away with CPD accredited training.
