50% of lifetime mental health problems start before the age of 14. 1 in 6 children have a diagnosable mental health disorder. That’s 5 in every classroom.
Luckily wonderful organisations like Place2Be are raising awareness and making a difference. Place2Be are a charity who run Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week every year. This initiative was launched with the intention to empower, equip and give a voice to all children and young people in the U.K. In it’s tenth year, the theme this time around is “My Voice Matter”
