Children’s Mental Health Week 2017


Cygnet Health Care is pleased to support Children’s Mental Health Week (6-12 February).

The week is hosted by children’s mental health charity Place2Be, which was recently announced as Cygnet Health Care’s nominated charity for 2017. The theme for this year’s Children’s Mental Health Week is ‘spread a little kindness’.

Moving schools, struggling in class, bullying, trouble at home – children go through tough times just like the rest of us.

And while we cannot always change their circumstances, a small gesture – whether it’s lending a listening ear, offering a helping hand, or just telling someone how much you appreciate them – can make a big difference.

When children feel supported by peers and grown-ups, they are better able to deal with difficult transitions. Not only that, but scientists have proven that being kind to ourselves and others is good for our brains – and our relationships!
