Mental health is an essential part of children’s overall wellbeing, and it has a complex interactive relationship with their physical health and ability to succeed in school, at work and in society. It is important to treat a child’s mental health just like we do his or her physical health, by giving it thought, attention and, when needed, professional help.
Throughout August, DLC is sharing resources and tips on the topic of children’s mental health, along with featured opportunities to support their wellbeing within the community.
