Children’s Mental Health Week 2019

Children’s Mental Health Week 2019, from February 4 – 10, shines a spotlight on the mental wellbeing of young people and we’re proud to support this awareness raising campaign.

This year’s theme is Healthy: Inside and Out to encourage children and young people to look after both their minds and bodies, as simple things such as sleeping, eating and being active have a positive impact on wellbeing.

 

Sleep well

New research from Place2Be, which spearheads the Children’s Mental Health Week campaign, suggests children with less sleep are more likely to struggle with worries.

Children and young people who usually get less than the recommended nine hours sleep on a school night are more likely to feel that worries get in the way of school work (32% vs. 22%), according to a survey of over 1,100 10-11 year-olds and 13-15 year-olds carried out by Place2Be.
