Navigating the Emotional Wellbeing Support for Children and Young People

One of the most damaging effects of the pandemic has been the impact on the mental health of children and young people.

Across Kent and Medway there are services and resources that can support parents, schools and those working with young people.

We need your help to ensure that these services and resources are widely publicised this Children’s Mental Health Week, 1 to 7 February 2021.

We have provided you with a range of coordinated promotional information, content and resources to be used on social media. There is also practical resources for you to use directly with young people. Everyone is invited to get involved and share resources available to provide support and guidance to children, young people, their families and professionals across the county.

The images along with ‘ready to go’ messages are all available on Google Drive (works best on Chrome). If you have any difficulty accessing the files, please contact

If you are unable to share content direct, please do share the content on your online channels. Details of partners social media accounts can be found both in the social media content guide (PDF, 397.1 KB) and within the Google Drive.

This content offer can be used beyond Children’s Mental Health Week so that we can continue to provide information about the support which is available to families across Kent and Medway.

Good emotional and wellbeing support to children and young people has never been needed more than it is today. By working together schools, health, Integrated children’s services and many other key partners are determined to provide the support that they need.

This support is set out clearly on the Kent Resilience Hub. This page will enable you to navigate support if you know a child or young person who needs it. It also provides guidance and links to access services and practical tools.

There is a one-page infographic that captures the routes to the key services and how to contact them.
