Children’s Mental Health Week
5-11 February 2018
Cardinal Clinic is pleased to be supporting Place2Be’s Children’s Mental Health Week (5-11 February).
The theme this year is ‘Being Ourselves’. Sadly, some children and young people can find it difficult to view themselves in a positive way, with low-self esteem affecting more than 8 in 10 of the pupils who have Place2Be’s one-to-one support. That is why this Children’s Mental Health Week, Place2Be is encouraging young people to celebrate their uniqueness and feel comfortable with who they are.
Whilst we cannot always change a child’s situation, helping them to have a positive view of themselves can help them to cope with life’s challenges. Recognising the different qualities of others can also help us to connect with those around us – which is vital for our own and others’ wellbeing!
