CHILDREN’S MENTAL HEALTH WEEK - 1-7 February
During Children’s Mental Health Week I joined young people and mental health experts from leading UK children’s charity, Action for Children for an online event to discuss supporting children across the UK.
Mental health problems affect children of all ages and the Covid-19 pandemic likely to have further detrimental effects on mental health.
Attending the event, I heard from young people who have taken part programmes from Action for Children.
Charities like Action for Children are working hard to help address the mental health challenges our children face, and I welcome their efforts to provide vital support at such a critical time.
