Mental Health Awareness Week

This week (wb 18-05-2020) is Mental Health Awareness week and the theme this year is “KINDNESS”.  We would like to invite our whole community to help us in raising awareness this week and taking part in our Kindness Cup Challenge!  During the week, we would like you to carry out or reflect on an act of kindness. Take a photo or video (with permission!)  and send them to us using the hashtags #KindnessMatters and #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek

Doing things for others is a great way of making ourselves feel good and boosting our own morale.

Some examples could be:            

  • Offer help to someone who might be lonely or in need of support
  • Collect a care package from school for someone who you think may need some extra support
