Children's Mental Health Week February 7th – 11th 2022
This week has been Children's Mental Health Weekwhere we have been focusing on ensuring the children understand how to be resilient. The theme for this year 'is Growing Together'.
Growing Together is about growing emotionally and finding ways to help each other grow. Challenges and setbacks can help us to grow and adapt and trying new things can help us to move beyond our comfort zone into a new realm of possibility and potential. However, emotional growth is often a gradual process that happens over time, and sometimes we might feel a bit 'stuck'. Throughout the week all children have been looking at ways to ensure how they could over come hurdles and still grow as well as looking at what makes them.
As parents and carers, you play an important role in your child's mental health and the one thing we need to keep on doing is talking and stopping the stigma of sometimes feeling a sad or down.
