children's mental health week 2021

Next week is 'Children's Mental Health Week'. This is particularly relevant at this current time as children are unable to see friends and family or undertake normal daily routines. Parents and carers will be feeling the pressures too and so it is vitally important that this is recognised and acknowledged. 

'Place2Be' have published a whole host of resources which can be accessed through the following link:
