It’s all about #BeingOurselves!

SEPTEMBER 25, 2018

Child Mental Health Week was given a royal seal of approval by the Duchess of Cambridge who recorded a video message of support for charity Place2Be's campaign encouraging children, young people and adults to celebrate their uniqueness.

The theme this year is 'Being Ourselves’. Some children and young people can find it difficult to view themselves in a positive way, with low self-esteem affecting more than 8 in 10 of the pupils who have Place2Be’s one-to-one support. That is why this Children’s Mental Health Week, Place2Be is encouraging children and young people to celebrate their uniqueness and feel comfortable with who they are.
