This week is Children's mental health week. The theme of Children's Mental Health Week 2021 is Express Yourself.
The aim is to encourage children to express themselves in a variety of ways. For example, expressing yourself can be about sharing your feelings, thoughts and ideas through creativity. Children could express how they feel through a piece of artwork or writing, or they could express it through a performance such as dance or drama.
An important part of this theme is that expressing yourself doesn't mean that you're the best at something. It's all about finding a way to show other people who you are and how you feel. It's about showing how you see the world and finding a way to 'express yourself' which feels good to you. Expressing yourself in a way that's unique to you is a great way to improve mental wellbeing.
Underneath there are lot's of activities and resources that you can do throughout the week to support your mental health and wellbeing.
