Mental Health Facts

We all know that there has been a lot of media spotlight on the mental health of the nation recently, including that of our most precious resource, our children.

According to Play Therapy UK, play therapy is effective for between 74% and 83% of children, when delivered to PTUK standards. See the latest research at
