This week is Place2Be’s ‘Children’s Mental Health Week’. Place2Be is a children’s mental health charity. Its annual ‘Children’s Mental Health Week’ shines a spotlight on the importance of children and young people’s mental health.


This year’s theme is ‘Express Yourself’. Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film, and doing activities that make you feel good.

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.


For Children's Mental Health Week 2021, we are encouraging children (and adults) to explore the different ways we can express ourselves, and the creative ways that we can share our feelings, our thoughts and our ideas. Click this link for ideas:

You’ll find more resources and activity suggestions in your Google Classroom this week. On Friday, St CD’s children are encouraged to attend their class Google Meet wearing something to express themselves!
