This Children’s Mental Health Week (5-11 February 2018) we’re highlighting the importance of ‘Being Ourselves’. Place2Be is inviting everyone – children, young people and adults – to come together and celebrate the unique qualities and strengths in themselves and others.
Some children and young people can find it difficult to think of positive things about themselves. Low self-esteem affects more than 8 in 10 of the pupils who have Place2Be counselling.
When we have a positive view of ourselves, it can help us to cope with life’s challenges and make better connections with others.
At the same time, celebrating the unique strengths of the people around us can allow us to come together in our schools, workplaces and communities.
Over the coming months, we will be sharing ideas and resources to help people, schools and organisations get involved and show their support for Children’s Mental Health Week.

Previous themes highlighted during the Week have included ‘Spread a little kindness’ (2017) and ‘Building resilience’ (2016).
