Today is the start of Children’s Mental Health Week. It was lovely to all get together this morning to be reminded of the importance of looking after our mental health. The theme for this year is ‘My Voice Matters’.
My Voice Matters is about empowering children of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities to work together to create a positive change for their mental health and wellbeing by providing them with the tools they need to express themselves.
Children’s mental health week is also a great opportunity to revisit 10 a day for mental wellbeing and to look at how we can all actively promote our own wellbeing as well as supporting and encouraging others to do this too.
1. Talk about your feelings
2. Keep in touch with the people you care about
3. Ask for help
4. Stay active in mind and body
5. Take a break
6. Do something you are good at and enjoy
7. Eat well
8. Actively care for others
9. Stay hydrated
10. Be proud of your very being
