Children's Mental Health Week 2024: my voice matters

February 2024

It's Children's Mental Health Week from 5-11 February, shining a light on the importance of children and young people’s mental well-being. Find out more about this year's theme and the support and training options we offer for children, young people and parents and carers

The theme of this year's Children's Mental Health Week is 'my voice matters', which is about empowering children and young people by providing them with the tools they need to express themselves.

When we feel empowered, this has a positive impact on our well-being. It's important that children and young people feel that they are heard and listened to, giving them a greater sense of community, improving their self-esteem and confidence, and boosting their mental health.

Here at West Sussex Mind, we know that giving children and young people a voice and reassuring them that it is okay to say how they feel and ask for help is crucial for their mental health. We support children and young people directly and help them to manage their mental health, build resilience and connect in with their local community. We also provide support and training for parents and professionals to help them support children and young people.

Here's a flavour of what we can provide:
