Mental health for Early Years Children – Help for Early Years Providers

Quick Navigation

Dec 15 2023

We all have mental health, just as we have physical health.  In the same way that we can be more or less physically healthy from time to time, we can also be more or less mentally healthy from time to time too.

Help for Early Years Providers has added new information and guidance on supporting babies and young children with their mental health.

The guidance:

  • explains how practitioners can support positive mental health in early years children
  • includes emotional and behavioural support strategies to use in early years settings
  • links to further reading and resources

For more guidance on supporting children in the early years, visit the Help for Early Years Providers website.
