Children's Mental Health Week

February 2022

This week throws the spotlight on children's mental health. Here are some of the ways in which West Sussex Mind supports children. Parents and professionals: read on!

  • We offer a range of training opportunities for parents and for professionals working with children and young people. From our self-harm networks for schools to our workshops for parents of children with autism, we have a variety of sessions to help
  • We provide support for the children themselves through our specialist mental health workers based in GP practices in Worthing, Lancing and Chanctonbury. Please speak to your GP
  • Parents can get help with us around supporting their child or young person who is struggling with a mental health issue
  • In addition, our awareness-raising work takes us into schools to get children talking about mental well-being. This work relies on fundraising and donations to continue.

West Sussex Mind and YMCA DownsLink set up learning networks to support children who are self-harming
