Children’s Mental Health week

The 6th-12th February marks Children’s Mental Health week. This years theme is ‘Let’s Connect’. 

Let’s Connect is about making meaningful connections. People thrive in communities, and this connection is vital for our wellbeing. When we have healthy connections – to family, friends and others – this can support our mental health and our sense of wellbeing. 

Place2Be are encouraging everyone to take some time this week to connect with others in healthy, rewarding and meaningful ways, whether that be in person, a letter or a video call. 

In the images above, there are some great ideas on how to nurture mental health in young people. You can also find more information on mental health support through the pastoral page on the Balcarras website
