Children’s Mental Health Week, now in its 15th year, is led by Place2Be and takes place from 5 to 11 February, with the theme ‘My Voice Matters’.
The charity Place2Be says:
My Voice Matters is about empowering children and young people by providing them with the tools they need to express themselves. During Children’s Mental Health Week we want all children and young people, whoever they are, and wherever they are in the world, to be able to say – and believe – ‘My Voice Matters’.

Children’s Mental Health Week is an opportunity for Buckinghamshire Mind to remind our local community that we provide year round support to children and young people across Buckinghamshire and East Berkshire.

Our Children and Young People Services team has created activity sheets, funded by Champion the Change, for libraries in Bucks. The activity sheets are linked to three children’s books about feelings and can be used by adults to support the discussion of mental health and emotions when reading with children.
