Emotional wellbeing site for children launched

  • Comment

‘Cam’s Den’ is an interactive emotional wellbeing website launched by Tavistock and Portman Foundation Trust for children aged 7-10 years in the Camden area.

It provides children with a fun environment in which to learn more about emotional issues and develop coping skills at a key stage in their mental development.

The site is based on sock puppet Cam and his pals who are named after different emotions: Happy, Sad, Calm, Confused, Angry and Scared.

Clinical psychologist and project lead Dr. Sally Hodges said: “We are proud of the fact that this project has been led by children in Camden who have helped us develop the content at every step of the way, which we think makes the site unique. Children were especially helpful in developing our understanding of what kinds of issues primary school children are preoccupied with and how best to get information across to them.”
