Children’s Mental Health Week 2020 – Find your Brave

From 3-9 February 2020 we will take part in Children’s Mental Health Week with many other schools and organisations across the UK. 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.

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.

Around three children in every primary school class has a mental health problem, and many more struggle with challenges from bullying to bereavement. This statistic is the reason why we are spreading the word this week – we are focusing on courage and kindness.
