Children’s Mental Health Week

The Two Wishes Foundation is proud to support Place2Be’s Children’s Mental Health Week in February each year. In 2021 the theme was Express Yourself.

Watch Royal Patron HRH The Duchess of Cambridge’s video message to children to express themselves. She says that parents and carers also need to look after themselves – “To be the very best versions of ourselves for the children in our care”.

All of Place2Be’s free resources will help children and young people to explore what it means to Express Yourself.  They can all be adapted for use in school, for home-schooling, online or independent learning.

Don’t forget to join in the Children’s Mental Health Week map during the week!

Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film, and doing activities that make you feel good.
