Community Trust support 'Children's Mental Health Week'
Bristol Rovers Community Trust, Bristol Rovers Academy and Bristol Rovers are delighted to be supporting Children’s Mental Health Week. From 1-7 February 2021 schools, youth groups, organisations and individuals across the UK will take part in activities to help educate and promote the different ways that we can provide mental health support for children.
Organised by Place2Be, the first ever Children’s Mental Health Week was launched in 2015 to shine a spotlight on the importance of children and young people’s mental health. Now in its seventh year, we hope to encourage more people than ever to get involved and spread the word. This year’s theme is Express Yourself.
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. For Children's Mental Health Week 2021 we will be encouraging children (and adults) to explore the different ways we can express ourselves, and the creative ways that we can share our feelings, our thoughts and our ideas.
Around three children in every primary school class has a mental health problem, and many more struggle with challenges from bullying to bereavement. Whether you’re someone who works with children, a parent or carer or passionate about spreading the word, you can help to reach as many people as possible.
