Children’s Mental Health Week, 4 -10 February 2019
Mental Health is such an important aspect of life – especially in children!
Did you know?
- 1 in 10 children and young people (aged 5-16), suffer from a diagnosable mental health problem such as depression, anxiety or an eating disorder. That’s around 3 children in every classroom. (Young Minds, 2018)
- 10% of young people deliberately harm themselves regularly. (Young Minds, 2018)
- 75% of long-lasting mental ill health starts before the age of 18. (Young Minds, 2018)
- School referrals for mental health treatment have risen by over a third. (NSPCC, 2018)
This week, February 4th – 11th, 2019, is Children’s Mental Health Week!
NSM will be releasing daily videos full of TOP T.I.P.S all this week to help promote positive mental health in schools! It is vital now more than ever to encourage children and young people to talk about any issues and concerns they may have. Remember – there is no Health without Mental Health!
