Children’s Mental Health Week

Express Yourself!

All this week is Children’s Mental Health week. Our mental health is just as important as our physical health and, just as we have discovered with our physical health during lockdown, we sometimes need to work a bit harder to keep ourselves healthy.

Not seeing our friends, or our teachers face to face, can be a little bit tough – but there is lots that we can do to help. As long as we remember to express ourselves.

So, for Children’s Mental Health week, let’s think a little bit more about what it means to express ourselves.

Watch the video and think about what it means for these people to express themselves. How do you think it helps their mental health? Are there any similarities with things you like to do?

Watch the slide show and talk to someone about the various slides.  Below is a reading of Beautiful Oops by Bernie Saltzberg. Does listening to this story make you feel differently about making mistakes?
