Children's Mental Health Week

Children's Mental Health Week

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.


The year's Children's Mental Health Week will take place on 7-13 February 2022. This year's theme is Growing Together.

We will be encouraging children (and adults) to consider how they have grown, and how they can help others to grow.

Our free resources will help you take part in the week. All of the ideas can be adapted for use in school, for home-schooling, online lessons or independent learning.  

During Children’s Mental Health Week 2021, we raised over £87,000, and with your help, we can make Children’s Mental Health Week 2022 the biggest and best yet! By downloading our Fundraising Pack and planning your own Dress to Express fundraiser, you’ll be raising important awareness for children’s mental health and vital funds for Place2Be.
