Children's mental health and wellbeing

Resources to support children’s emotional health

Children's mental health has never been higher on the agenda. According to a report from NHS Digital, one in six children aged five to 16 were identified as having a probable mental health problem in July 2021. That’s five children in every classroom.

The coronavirus pandemic has had a huge impact on young people’s emotional wellbeing and mental health problems in children are at an all-time high.

We have gathered some resources to help support children’s mental wellbeing in primary schools, including a list of mental health support services and providers of mental health care.

The role of social media in young people’s mental health issues cannot be ignored, so you may also want to see our online safety resources. You may also like our anti-bullying resources.
