Children’s Mental Health Week

Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CWP)  are pleased to be supporting Children’s Mental Health Week (8–14 February).

Hosted by children’s mental health charity Place2Be, the theme of the week this year is ‘building resilience’ and teaching children to ‘bounce forward’ from life’s challenges.

Bereavement, illness, family breakdown, bullying, pressure of exams… children carry far more than the weight of their backpack on their shoulders.

And while we cannot always change children’s circumstances, we can teach them the skills to cope with the difficulties life throws at them.

3 children in every classroom have a diagnosable mental health problem and children are less likely to suffer from serious mental health difficulties later in life if they receive support at an early age.
