Children’s Mental Health Week
1-7 Feb 2021
From 1-7 February 2021, we’re taking part in Children’s Mental Health Week. This year’s theme is EXPRESS YOURSELF and we’re encouraging children (and adults) to explore the different ways we can express ourselves, and the creative ways that we can share our feelings, our thoughts and our ideas.
With schools partially closed and lots of uncertainty, children and young people’s mental health has never been more important.
When we express ourselves we don’t have to be a great artist or a wonderful dancer. It’s not about being the very best at something or putting on a performance. Let’s encourage each other to find lots of different ways to get creative and express ourselves.
There are many resources linked below suggested by Place2Be that can be used with children at home including activity ideas, stories and an online assembly which will be available from 1st February.
