Evidence suggests that incidents of mental health problems are increasing in children, with 1 in 10 children aged 5-16 experiencing a mental health problem. This is equivalent to about 3 children in every class.
In response to these statistics Otford primary are collaborating with West Kent Mind to deliver an Introduction to Mental Health Awareness workshops for parents on Wednesday, 16th January from 9-10am at school. This workshop will help you to gain a wider understanding of the issues surrounding mental health in children. Everyone is welcome and we look forward to seeing you there!
