For Children’s Mental Health Week, we have brought together Research in Practice resources to support positive mental health outcomes for children, young people and their families.

For social care, health and education practitioners, having a good understanding of the various causes and effects of mental health conditions can help to improve outcomes for children, young people and their families.
