By talking openly about mental health from a young age, children can learn to better understand their emotions, break down stigma, and feel safe enough to reach out for help when it’s needed. Talking about mental health and expressing our feelings can be difficult, no matter our age. On this page, we are sharing many great resources to help children, staff and parents start the mental health conversation.

During this current lockdown, it is more important than ever to share how we are feeling with others.
