Children’s Mental Health Week is coming up, and the theme this year is ‘express yourself’. By talking openly about mental health from a young age, children can learn to better understand their emotions, break down stigma, and feel safe enough to reach out for help when it’s needed. Talking about mental health and expressing our feelings can be difficult, no matter our age. On this page, we are sharing many great resources to help children, staff and parents start the mental health conversation.
During this current lockdown, it is more important than ever to share how we are feeling with others.
This leaflet provides simple advice and guidance for parents and carers about having conversations about their child’s feelings and making them part of everyday life.
This is an easy to read PDF and interactive website with tips, videos and suggestions for parents about encouraging their child to open up about their feelings.
This video shows a fun activity that helps children think about and draw their feelings.
