Children’s Mental health week is run by children’s mental health charity Place2Be to focus on the importance of children and young people’s mental health. This year’s theme is ‘Find your Brave’. Bravery comes in all shapes and sizes and is different for everyone. Bravery can be about sharing worries and asking for help, trying something new or pushing yourself outside your comfort zone. Finding your Brave can build your confidence, self-esteem and make you feel good about yourself
Class workshops and discussions.
Life often throws challenges our way. Bravery isn’t about coping alone or holding things in. It’s about finding positive ways to deal with things that might be difficult, overcoming physical and mental challenges and looking after yourself. Remind the children that being brave can be about big things but it’s often about little things that happen every day. Reinforce that sometimes being brave is about saying no, asking others for help or sharing worries.
