Children's Mental Health Week

Monday 1st February - Sunday 7th February

This year, Mental Health Awareness Week falls during lockdown. From 1-7 February 2021 schools, youth groups, organisations and individuals across the UK will take part in Children’s Mental Health Week. This year’s theme is Express Yourself.

 

Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film, and doing activities that make you feel good.

It’s important to remember that being able to express yourself is not about being the best at something or putting on a performance for others. It is about finding a way to show who you are, and how you see the world, that can help you feel good about yourself.

 

For Children's Mental Health Week 2021 we will be 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. Around three children in every primary school class has a mental health problem, and many more struggle with challenges from bullying to bereavement.

 

This week we’re sharing links to resources that help support the well-being of children and young people at this time.
