Children’s Mental Health week 2018 #BeingOurselves
5th – 11th February
Some children and young people can find it difficult to think positively about themselves. Low self-esteem affects more than 8 in 10 of the pupils who have Place2Be one-to-one support.
That’s why this Children’s Mental Health Week (5-11 February 2018) we’re highlighting the importance of ‘Being Ourselves’. Place2Be is inviting everyone – children, young people and adults – to come together and celebrate the unique qualities and strengths in themselves and others.
When we have a positive view of ourselves, it can help us to cope with life’s challenges and make better connections with others.
At the same time, celebrating the unique strengths of the people around us can enable us to come together in our schools, workplaces and communities.
Whether you’re a parent, someone who works with children, or even just someone who is passionate about supporting children and young people’s mental health – you can support the campaign by getting involved and spreading the word.
Let’s celebrate ‘Being Ourselves’ together.
Resources are available for primary and secondary schools.
