The theme of this year’s Children’s Mental Health Week is Express Yourself.
Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. 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.
At school we would like all our children to express themselves and talk about their uniqueness by creating a time to shine poster, which can be shared in school and via our virtual learning platform Seesaw.
Also listen out for the charity single by Billy Ocean and the Young voices.
To coincide with Children’s Mental Health Week 2021, pop icon Billy Ocean has teamed up with the Young Voices Choir to release a new and uplifting recording of the Bill Withers’ classic.
The single is available to download now via iTunes or Amazon. All the UK profits from the song will go to Place2Be’s work supporting children and young people’s mental health during these challenging times. ‘Lovely Day’.
