Children's Mental Health Week

Dear Parents and Carers,

Children's Mental Health Week is taking place on 7-13 February 2022. This year's theme is Growing Together. Growing Together is about growing emotionally and finding ways to help each other grow. Challenges and setbacks can help us to grow and adapt and trying new things can help us to move beyond our comfort zone.

1 in 6 children and young people have a diagnosable mental health problem, and many more struggle with challenges from bullying to bereavement.

My Journey Hampshire have created a Funsize Toolkit, providing an activity to enjoy each day of Children's Mental Health Week 7 - 13 February 2022. These fun ideas will encourage families to walk, scoot or cycle on the school run and during the weekend. They provide a fantastic opportunity to spend time talking, having fun and thinking about this years theme for Children's Mental Health week.

We hope you can try an activity each day of the week using the links below or mix them up to suit you and your family. Remember to allow yourself a little extra time each day on your journey.

Best Wishes

Mr Byrom
