It’s estimated one in ten children aged 5 – 16 in Lancashire have a mental health disorder. That’s more than 19,000 young people. But only a quarter of those who need treatment will receive it. Will you help us build a happier future for Lancashire?
Child Action Northwest (CANW) is launching a new campaign to improve the mental health of children and young people in our communities and we hope you’ll want to join us to make a positive difference to young lives. Our ‘Emojinal Health’ initiative will enable CANW’s team of BACP trained counsellors to provide counselling and advice to children and young people who experience low level mental health issues. The service will offer young people swift, easy, effective access to support, giving them the help they need when they need it most.
Why ‘Emojinal Health’? Emojis can often help children convey their emotions when it’s hard to find the words, and we wanted them to know there’s somewhere they can turn to when they’re feeling happy or sad.
