Children’s Mental Health Week

9th Feb 2024

Each year, there is a week dedicated to Children’s Mental Health. 

The theme of the week changes each year. This year’s theme is: ‘My Voice Matters’

The theme was chosen to support young people to develop the skills they need to express their opinions, beliefs, values and feelings.

When we can express ourselves and what matters to us, we feel heard and valued.
When we feel truly listened to and included, it can make us feel more confident and help boost our self-esteem.

When we use our voices, we can express what we would like to happen, what matters to us and what we would like to change.

Being able to do this can help boost our overall wellbeing and mental health.

Information has been sent home today with your child on how to talk to them about their Emotional Health.
