Children's Mental Heath Week

Published on 30/01/2023

At IDL we are proud to support Children's Mental Health Week and help make a difference to the lives of children and young people across the UK. It is estimated that 1 in 6 children have a diagnosable mental health issue, so it’s important to support children and help them to understand and address unwelcome emotions as well as encourage positive ones.

To ensure that as many pupils as possible can access the support they need, we are offering all schools 30% off IDL Wellbeing. This brand new programme has been developed alongside a children’s psychologist using contemporary theories and mindfulness practices to help pupils develop their resilience, confidence and learn how to keep mentally healthy.

Children’s Mental Health Week is organised by the Place2Be charity and takes place 6th-12th of February. This year’s theme is ‘Let’s Connect’, encouraging children (and adults) to look at how we can make meaningful connections. When we have healthy connections – to family, friends and others – this can support our mental health and our sense of wellbeing.
