Children’s Mental Health Week 2019 finishes this weekend. The focus has been Healthy: Inside and Out, making sure that we all think about mental well-being as much as physical.
From hosting the local event Youth Mental Health First Aid last week, the staff at St Pius have been reflecting on how much our bodies and minds are very closely linked – and the ways we can further develop our provision in this area. We know that children can have diagnosable mental health conditions and that many more struggle with challenges like a bereavement – we are here to help, and can always put you in contact with specialists if required.
As parents and carers, you obviously play a very important role in your child’s health. There are lots of online resources to help you look after bodies and minds together – please see https://www.childrensmentalhealthweek.org.uk/parents-and-carers/ for more details.
