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.
Further CPD guidance is available in our CPD Wellbeing library.
