About Children’s Mental Health Week
Place2Be launched the first-ever Children’s Mental Health Week in 2015 to shine a spotlight on the importance of children and young people’s mental health.
Now in its ninth year, the day aims to encourage more people than ever to get involved and spread the word.
Supporting children locally
Our Wellbeing And Resilience Mental Health Service (WARMS) is a service that provides young people and their families support around mental health and emotional wellbeing. Our service is aimed at helping young people early on so you can get help quickly and problems do not get worse. We work in primary and secondary schools across Essex.
