Thank you for supporting
Children's Mental Health.

Significant life transitions are not always easy to face. Starting a new school, welcoming a new sibling, navigating through a loved one's illness, a loss of a pet or simply moving to a new home are all big events in a child's life. It's that time of transitioning from something old into something new that can create anxiety and stress which amplifies the gravity of the change taking place.  

 

Childhood Matters aims to support big life transitions by preparing children for these changes and by empowering them with coping strategies that helps promote positive mental health. Coping and play are essential elements of child development and are deeply connected with each other. Play encourages natural and creative coping skills in children. That is why we use the power of play to help enhance children's social and emotional well being.
