Children and Young People’s Mental Health Week

It’s Children and Young People’s Mental Health week and I am excited to launch our new Google Site: Mental Health and Wellbeing Information Point – Mental Health and Wellbeing ( and Google Drive Shared folder “MHWB Information for Schools”.

The google site contains up-to-date information for children & young people, families, and school staff around a variety of mental health and wellbeing topics. It provides information and resources to sign-post to, as well as support in having conversations around mental health. There is a page introducing our Mental Health Youth Work team and we plan to update this with information and supports on offer. This site will be ever-growing and updating.
