The 4th -10th February is children’s mental health week. A time for reflection on the physical as well as the mental well being of young children. In this day and age when so many things can lead a child to have mental health issues it is good that events by Place2be are available. With the Mental Health curriculum due to begin next year it is of great concern that young people do not have all the resources to help them through their tough times. Many services have been cut and those that are available have a long waiting list. I hope that there will be a time when all young people who are in need of help are able to get it as quickly as possible before they feel so desperate that they self harm and worse.
