Find your Brave!

Last week was Children’s Mental Health Week, run by the mental health charity Place2Be, which encourages us to focus on the importance of looking after our emotional well-being from an early age. We know that 1 in 8 children and young people have a diagnosable mental health condition, which is an alarming statistic…that’s 2 or 3 in every school class! Many more will have poor mental well-being and so will also be trying to look after their mental health and may need support to do so.
The theme of this year’s Children’s Mental Health week was ‘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. 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. We all have times when we need to Find our Brave”. Check out the Place2Be website here. There is some great advice and resources to explore.
