The last two years have been a difficult time for children’s mental health. The pandemic brought three lockdowns, social isolation and levels of uncertainty that few children have ever experienced. Almost inevitably this had an impact on their mental health, with 1 in 6 identified as having a probable mental health condition in 2021. (Up from 1 in 9 in 2017).
In this webinar we will be looking at common mental health problems and their prevalence among children and young people.
We will also be exploring the impact of some of the factors that can affect their mental health, like uncertainty and social media, and we’ll draw attention to a range of resources available to help children and the parents supporting them.
