Children’s Mental Health Week 2023 ‘Let’s Connect’

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. For this year’s theme Let’s Connect, Place2Be is encouraging children (and adults) to connect with others in healthy, rewarding, and meaningful ways.
