Mental Health Awareness Week
Mental Health Awareness Week 2021 (10th – 16th May) saw the Education Scotland CLD team celebrate the impact that CLD has on raising awareness of mental health for learners, families and communities.
As the theme of Mental Health Awareness week was Nature, the Education Scotland CLD team participated in a team walking steps challenge and shared photos of local nature throughout the week.
Over the course of the working week, four members of our team walked over 205,000 steps, enjoyed the time outdoors in all weathers and took some wonderful photos some of which will be at the bottom of this post.
Encouraging others to spend time outdoors and think about mental health, we released a podcast with CLD Talks.
Education Scotland Mental Health Wakelet has been created to share practical, free resources for practitioners, parents, carers & young people:
