Children's Mental Health Week - Express Yourself

When does Children's Mental Health Week take place? 


This year, in 2021, Children's Mental Health Week will take place from February 1st to February 7th. Schools, youth groups, various organisations and individuals across the UK will be taking part in Children's Mental Health Week 2021.


What is the theme of the week? 


The theme of Children's Mental Health Week this year is 'Express Yourself'. The aim is to encourage children to express themselves in a variety of ways. For example, expressing yourself can be about sharing your feelings, thoughts and ideas through creativity. Children could express how they feel through a piece of artwork or writing, or they could express it through a performance such as dance or drama.

An important part of this theme is that expressing yourself doesn't mean that you're the best at something. It's all about finding a way to show other people who you are and how you feel. It's about showing how you see the world and finding a way to 'express yourself' which feels good to you. Expressing yourself in a way that's unique to you is a great way to improve mental wellbeing.

This year, Place2Be is encouraging both children and adults to explore the different ways that we can express ourselves. It's time to get creative and express your feelings, thoughts and ideas, through poetry, song, dance, or whatever it is that interests you.
