Children's Mental Health Week: shining a spotlight on the unseen

Children's Mental Health Week is an opportunity to raise awareness of mental health issues and address how it affects everyone in society. 

Because we listen to young people, we know they are not getting the right help at the right time to support their mental health and well-being.

Our film 'Waiting to be Seen', depicts how invisible one school boy feels when waiting for support amongst a crowd of students with more obvious physical injuries. 

By not giving children and young people the support they need at a young age, society is allowing their problems to manifest. With the right support at the right time, these problems can be managed and prevented. 

That's why our mental and emotional health services are there to offer support so that no child has to wait to be seen.

Share our video to raise awareness of the often unseen nature of mental health in young people.
