Children’s Mental Health Week all about #BeingOurselves

It’s Children’s Mental Health week on 5–11 February 2018 and this year it is encouraging children, young people and adults to celebrate their uniqueness, using #BeingOurselves. The activities are led by Place2Be, which launched the first Children’s Mental Health Week in 2015. The fourth year focuses on how some children and young people can find it difficult to think positively about themselves – low self-esteem affects more than eight in 10 pupils who have Place2Be one-to-one support. The charity is encouraging anyone who works with children to support the campaign by getting involved and spreading the word to schools and on social media. There are various marking materials that are available to download.
