Children & Young People – New Forest Mental Health Awareness Week

teenage needing help and advice

Did you know that more than 850,000 children and young people in the UK have been diagnosed with a mental health condition?

The New Forest Children, Young People and Families Network is supporting a children and young people Mental Health Awareness week, during the period 1 – 7 March 2017.

 What is Mental Health?

Mental Health affects all aspects of a child’s development including their cognitive abilities, their social skills as well their emotional wellbeing. Building emotional resilience is key and there are core attributes seen in mentally healthy children and young people:

  • The capacity to enter into and sustain mutually satisfying personal relationships
  • A continuing progression of psychological development
  • An ability to play and to learn appropriately for their age and intellectual level
  • A developing moral sense of right and wrong
  • The capacity to cope with a degree of psychological distress
  • A clear sense of identity and self-worth

With good mental health, children and young people do better in every way. They enjoy their childhoods, are able to deal with stress and difficult times, are able to learn better, do better at school, navigate the online world they grew up in so they benefit from it and enjoy friendships and new experiences.

What can you do?
The following web link provides advice and information that can help children, young people, parents and professionals – http://www.youngminds.org.uk/
