Mental Health Awareness Week: Part 2

Mental Health Awareness Week 2020

Dear All,

As this week is national Mental Health Awareness Week, I thought it pertinent to collate some useful links for you.

It has been the strangest of times for us all, I am sure. I certainly know that I (and my family) have found it hard to adapt to our new way of life, so here are some different organisations who could help, if you need it.

Stay home, stay safe and stay well!

Here is a link to various online resources from Mental Health.org.uk and the NSPCC, specifically for children.

Sorry these details are fuzzy! Please find the full programme here: https://www.supportinglinks.co.uk/whatson.html

I like that the theme is ‘KINDNESS’, which is also one of our School Values. Here is a lovely Newsround clip on that subject: bbc.co.uk/newsround/52557800

Why not do one (or more) of these every day this week and over half term?

On Wednesday -check out the school blog for the pictures of this!

We had a go at making these on Tuesday and added lovely messages to people inside. These could be popped in the post to loved ones!
Fancy a challenge? Try this heart box – you could write a note inside or add a little card/note.

We also had a go at Kindness Chatterboxes – once folded, the messages inside could be something you miss (E.g. I miss hugs from Nana. I miss walks in the park with Uncle Fred and Auntie Kate etc) or an uplifting thought (E.g. You are a fantastic Mummy and I love you. You make the best roast dinners ever. You are a fantastic artist.). Any kind, thoughtful and positive idea is great! These could be for people in your house or to be posted to someone else!
