Children's Mental Health Week 2023

By Poetry Pharmacy

Place2Be launched the first-ever Children’s Mental Health Week in 2015 to shine a spotlight on the importance of children and young people’s mental health.  

Now in its ninth year, they hope to encourage more people than ever to get involved, spread the word, and raise vital funds for children’s mental health. 

Every year, Place2Be’s expert team develops resources to help people participate in the week. From activity ideas and assembly guides to top tips and videos, our free resources will help you explore mental health and wellbeing with the children and young people around you.
