NAHT is delighted to support Children's Mental Health Week once again this year.
In its eighth year, Children's Mental Health Week runs from 7 to 13 February 2022. It is being organised by leading children's health charity Place2Be.
This year's theme is 'Growing Together' and it focuses on encouraging children (and adults) to consider how they have grown and how they can help others to grow.
Place2Be has developed free resources for parents, carers and schools to download, including assembly guides, class activities and fundraising ideas and are designed to help children and young people explore what it means to grow together. There is also the opportunity to access free mental health training for schools to support the development of a whole-school approach to mental health.
Place2Be has also produced a social media guide including template tweets and images, to help you spread the word and raise awareness about activities during the week.
To keep up to date in the run-up to the week, you can sign up for the Children's Mental Health week newsletter.
