Children’s Mental Health Week
To mark this year’s 8th annual Children’s Mental Health Week, children’s counselling service charity, Place2Be, has joined forces with BAFTA Kids to produce two online assemblies for primary and secondary school audiences in the UK. Place2Be Ambassador Josh Smith speaks to various guests including Paralympic gold medallist Andy Lewis, actor Jacob Anderson and dancer Oti Mabuse, with a special message from Olivia Coleman in both assemblies. The theme ‘Growing Together’ was chosen to encourage children and young people to support one another through tough times. There is also a big focus on emotional growth this year as many young people are suffering from bereavement or bullying. Different types of advice are posted on the charity’s website, for those working directly with children, parents or fundraising. For more information, click here.
