Children’s Mental Health Week (1st – 7th February 2021)

This week is Children’s Mental Health Week.

Here at Healthwatch Blackpool we want to show our support. We know like many , our mental health and wellbeing is important in these uncertain times.

Leading the campaign is Place2Be, a children’s mental health charity who are providing lots of top tips, activity ideas and virtual sessions to be utilised by schools/youth groups, parents and carers.

The theme this year is ‘Express Yourself’. It is important that, now more than ever, we ensure the children in our society are able to express their thoughts and feelings in whichever ways they feel comfortable.

As Place2Be have said: “It’s important to remember that being able to express yourself is not about being the best at something or putting on a performance for others. It is about finding a way to show who you are, and how you see the world, that can help you feel good about yourself.”
