An Open Letter to the Secretary of State for Health & Social Care

We will be sharing this open letter with the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Matt Hancock calling on him to consider creating a specific and funded mental health strategy to support teachers, parents and children. This strategy will go towards addressing the potential impact COVID-19 has had on children and young people's mental wellbeing.

But we need your help, if you agree with what we are saying and are willing to join the Playful Minds alliance, then we ask you to consider signing the open letter here to show your support.

The more signatures we receive the more chance we have of making a difference. So please join us, Playful Minds and Book of Beasties, in showing our government the importance of being playful.
