Tigers Trust proud to support Children's Mental Health Week
Posted on 9th February 2024 at 15:31
The Tigers Trust proudly stands behind Children’s Mental Health Week, a significant event running from February 5th to 11th. This annual initiative is dedicated to shedding light on the mental well-being of children and young people, aiming to spark vital conversations and awareness.
The importance of discussing mental health cannot be overstated. Statistics show that 1 in 4 individuals may face mental health challenges at some point in their lives. This underscores the urgency of addressing mental health from an early age.
During Children’s Mental Health Week, the focus shifts towards empowering children to prioritise their mental well-being. It also encourages parents, carers, and teachers to reflect on their roles in providing support.
At the Tigers Trust, we are deeply committed to supporting mental health awareness and resilience among young people. Through our programmes like the Premier League Primary Stars and Premier League Inspires school initiatives, we provide avenues for students to engage in education and sports activities.
These programmes not only promote learning and physical activity but also instill crucial life skills. Additionally, our Premier League Inspires programme offers unique opportunities for students to participate in external visits, collapsed curriculum days, and sports activities. Such experiences can positively impact mental and physical wellbeing by exposing individuals to new environments and challenges.
It's really important that we all work together to support kids' mental health. Events like Children's Mental Health Week and programmes like those run by the Tigers Trust are really helpful in making sure kids feel joyful and happy. When we all join forces, we can make sure children have a better, brighter future for their mental health.
