Children’s Mental Health and Relationship Issues
Space2BHeard can support children struggling with relationships via therapy of varying varieties.
This week marks Children’s Mental Health Week (13th February 2023), an important time to raise awareness of the issues that children face with their mental health. Mental health is an issue that we should be talking about more openly as a society and this week brings attention to the struggles that many children, who often don’t have the ability to speak up for themselves, are facing.
One of the biggest issues that can affect a child’s mental health is relationship issues; this could be within the family, between peers or in wider society. Unfortunately, when it comes to relationship issues, there can be a stigma attached to them and children often don’t feel comfortable discussing them. Therefore, it’s so important to have conversations around these issues in an open and non-judgmental way.
Having supportive relationships and a good support network is essential in helping a child to cope with mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, and behaviour problems. It’s important for parents, teachers, and other adults in a child’s life to actively promote healthy relationships and provide emotional support when it’s needed. Additionally, children should also be taught early on how to handle conflict resolution and disagreements in a mutually respectful way, as this can help them build strong relationships with others.
At Space2BHeard, we work with fully trained and licensed counsellors who have been specially selected for their expertise in helping children with a range of relationship issues.
