Children's Mental Health Week 2021 with Place2Be
The theme of this year's Children’s Mental Health Week was Express Yourself.
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, and doing activities that make you feel good.
Information for parents and carers can be found here.
Free, virtual sessions led by experts have been created, please follow this link for sessions on Art, Creating Content and Writing.
