CHILDREN'S MENTAL HEALTH WEEK
I attended a drop in event in the Houses of Parliament to mark Children’s Mental Health Week 2022.
The event was organized by Place2Be, a charity providing mental health support in schools across the UK.
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. 2022 marks the eighth year of the awareness week and this year's theme, Growing Together, explores the importance of emotional growth and finding ways to help each other grow.
I was glad to find out more the charity’s work promoting wellbeing within the school community. and this event was a vital opportunity to learn about Place2Be’s important work and to discuss what more can be done to address this growing need.
Sally Etchells Wragg, Lead Organiser of the Place2Be event said “It was fantastic to welcome Ms Gibson to our event and inform her about the work we do to improve children’s mental health. We are grateful for the interest and support from Patricia and all other MPs who attended”
