Children's Mental Health Week - 03/02/2020

< Back to the news

From 3rd to 9th February 2020, it is Children’s Mental Health Week. This year’s theme is Find your Brave. 

We have been talking to the children this week in assemblies about ‘finding their brave.’ Bravery comes in all shapes and sizes and is different for everyone. Bravery can be about sharing worries and asking for help, trying something new or pushing themselves outside of their comfort zone. Finding your Brave can build children’s confidence, self-esteem and make them feel good about themselves. 

Life often throws challenges our way. Bravery isn’t about coping alone or holding things in. It’s about finding positive ways to deal with things that might be difficult, overcoming physical and mental challenges and looking after themselves. 

We all have times when we need to Find our Brave
