Children’s Mental Health Week 2018 – The theme is Being Ourselves
- Some children and young people can find it difficult to think positively about themselves.
- Low self-esteem affects lots of children.
- That’s why this Children’s Mental Health Week (5-11 February 2018) we’re highlighting the importance of ‘Being Ourselves’.
- 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.
Parents & Carers
Parents and carers have a very important role to play in helping children and young people learn the importance and value of ‘Being Ourselves’.
Helping your child build self-esteem and recognise both their own unique strengths and qualities and those of the people around them will help them build self-awareness and make better connections with others.
We want to reach as many children and young people as possible with the message that it’s great #BeingOurselves.
Can you help us spread the word to your child’s school or other schools that you know?
We’ve suggested some ways you can get involved and support the Week below…
