Mental Health Week

To mark the start of Children’s Mental Health Week, The Duchess of Cambridge, Patron of Place2Be, has sent a message of support encouraging children and parents to find ways to share their thoughts and feelings, particularly during such a challenging time.

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. This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film, and doing activities that make you feel good.

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 ‘Lovely Day’.

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.

 

Below you will find a book that could be used to support through this Global pandemic.
