Children’s Mental Health

With good mental health, children and young people do better in every way. They are happier in their families, are able to learn better, do better at school, work and enjoy friendships and new experiences. But we know that 1 in 10 children and young people, aged between 5 and 16 years (three in every classroom) has a mental health problem, and many will continue to have these problems into adulthood.

The good news is that children are less likely to suffer from serious mental health difficulties in later life if they receive the right support at an early age. This site can help you access information so that you and your school can help your child and signpost to appropriate services when needed.
