Children's Mental Health Week 2020

It’s Children’s Mental Health Week! From Monday 3rd until Sunday 9th February 2020, the awareness week, run by the charity Place2Be, is focusing on the importance of looking after emotional wellbeing from an early age, with a theme of ‘Find your brave’.

Bravery comes in all shapes and sizes and is different for everyone. Bravery can be about sharing worries and asking for help, trying something new or pushing yourself outside your comfort zone. Finding your brave can build your confidence, self-esteem and make you feel good about yourself.

This Children’s Mental Health Week, your support is needed to help spread the word and raise awareness of this important issue. Place2Be have created assets, example tweets and posts, to make it as easy as possible for you to raise awareness about the week. Find out more here: https://www.childrensmentalhealthweek.org.uk
