This week is Children’s Mental Health Week – a time to shine a spotlight on the importance of children and young people’s mental health.
Around five children in every classroom have a mental health problem and many more struggle with challenges from bullying to bereavement.
Children’s Mental Health Week was launched in 2015 to empower, equip and give a voice to every child in the UK. This year’s theme is ‘my voice matters’.
The aim of this special mental health week is to encourage more people than ever to help reach the goal that no child or young person has to face a mental health problem alone.
Hear from our very own Erin and Hank as they talk about their mental health in our short clip below and show your support @OxleasNHS and with the hashtag #ChildrensMentalHealthWeek.
