Children’s Mental Health Week 2021 Virtual Assembly – Express Yourself
Within our local community there are a number of fantastic services to support children and families. Here are some of the new services shared this week offering counselling, advice and support as we continue to adapt and change.
Mental Health Support for Children, Schools and Families
The past few months have been extremely tough on parent/carers and their children. Lots of parent/carers have voiced concerns about the impact of Covid-19 on their child’s social and emotional wellbeing. The GMCA have put together some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) aimed at helping parent/carers to support their child’s social and emotional wellbeing. They have been developed by a number of professionals across Trafford Council and Clinical Commissioning Group, including Health Visitors, Early Help professionals, Clinical and Educational Psychologists and specialist early years teachers.
