Mental Health Week
Children's Mental Health and Well Being
Children's Mental Health Week will take place from February 1st to February 7th.
The theme of Children's Mental Health Week this year is 'Express Yourself'. The aim is to encourage children to express themselves in a variety of ways. For example, expressing yourself can be about sharing your feelings, thoughts and ideas through creativity. Children could express how they feel through a piece of artwork or writing, or they could express it through a performance such as dance or drama.
An important part of this theme is that expressing yourself doesn't mean that you're the best at something. It's all about finding a way to show other people who you are and how you feel. It's about showing how you see the world and finding a way to 'express yourself' which feels good to you. Expressing yourself in a way that's unique to you is a great way to improve mental wellbeing.
Below, find some resources to celebrate Children's Mental Health Week. Try to have a go at doing at least one activity every day.
Play some relaxing music as you complete any of the resources, find a quiet place and read a book, have a go at the meditation videos or even complete some yoga! Send me some pictures of the activities you do!
Looking after our mental health is really important - not just this week. Keep accessing the resources even when Children's Mental Health week is over.
