Children’s Mental Health Week – February 2021

We are delighted to say that Place2Be’s ‘Children’s Mental Health Week’ is taking place from Monday 1st February. Their theme for this year is ‘Express Yourself’. Quoting their 2021 campaign ethos: “Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts or ideas through creativity. This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film… doing activities that make you feel good.”

If you haven’t already, check out Place2Be’s #ChildrensMentalHealthWeek virtual assembly.
