Mental Health Week 1st to 7th February

 

The theme of this year’s Children’s Mental Health Week is

Express Yourself.

Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. 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. This is important all year round but we think right now we all need to remember that we need to take time out and to Give Emotions Time.

In the learning packs that you are collecting from school this week we have included a wellbeing grid and have given some resources for families linked to creating worry dolls and mindfulness colouring.  There is a paper copy of some art activity ideas from the Place2Be and a grid of other activities that your family may find useful.

The learning grid includes links for parents to East Renfrewshire Council’s Healthier Minds resource and also a Children’s First Guide from Emma our Wellbeing Support Worker.
