Childrens Mental Health Week
Next week is children's mental health week (1 - 7 February) and the focus this year is 'Express Yourself'.
There are various resources on the link below to support the focus with your child as well as enabling them to communicate their feelings and experiences.
In this current situation of lockdown and ongoing social distancing the experience of novelty, delight and excitement can feel difficult as days can feel the same and varying activities can feel a challenge. Activities that evoke novelty, delight, excitement, and joy are important in activating feel good neurochemicals that are vital for mental health and wellbeing.
Moor House parents please see our mental health articles on the parent portal [password required] that include more information on the neurochemicals and what works to increase them.
There are resources available through the links from the mental health articles which can support you in finding different activities to do as well as further wellbeing activity ideas on the wellbeing toolkits and calendar as follows.
