Be kind.

This week is National Mental Health Awareness Week and the theme is kindness. During this period of national uncertainty and impact on everyone's mental health, it's important for everyone to be aware of the various support networks available. Lots of people, both children and adults will be struggling at the moment as we continue to adapt to significant changes to the way we are living our lives. This week we are sharing resources and useful links with a focus on mental health. -The help & advice section of the We Are With You website contains some helpful articles which include tips for relaxing at home, how to break a habit and setting boundaries. https://www.wearewithyou.org.uk/help-and-advice/advice-you/

The Anna Freud Centre is hosting a free seminar series, 'From Crisis to Kindness', for Mental Health Awareness Week. The seminars ask how we can bring together what we have learned in the last seven weeks and embed it in our future work. https://www.annafreud.org/insights/news/2020/05/from-crisis-to-kindness-seminars-for-mental-health-awareness-week/


This calendar, designed to be used throughout Mental Health Awareness Week, encourages pupils to do two acts of kindness each day – one to someone else and one to themselves. https://mentallyhealthyschools.org.uk/resources/seven-days-of-kindness-calendar
