Our Year 7 children participated in the NICCY & CCEA live Q&A webinar which focussed on children and young people's mental health and wellbeing. Mairead Monds of Childline was also in attendance.
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child says that children and young people around the world have the right to receive good quality mental health services and support. however, the right support can be difficult to get when it's needed.
the transition from primary to post-primary school can be a stressful time for children. implementing strategies to protect children from stress and help them learn to cope with change can be a positive influence on their young lives.
Young people face many pressures. These can include exam stress and the pressure to succeed, concerns about body image and appearance or bullying and cyberbullying.
This webinar gave pupils the chance to ask a panel of their peers and experts questions about mental health and wellbeing issues.
