Tudor Primary School

Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental Health Awareness Week - 18th May to 24th May 2020

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week. The focus is on kindness and Tudor Primary would like us all to join in by trying to add to your own calendar of kindness through the week.  Being kind to others

  • Makes us feel good
  • Improves relationships
  • Makes us all happy
  • Helps bond us as a community, family or school

 

The Mental Health Foundation works to prevent mental health problems.  https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/campaigns/mental-health-awareness-week

They drive change towards a mentally healthy society for all, and support communities, families, and individuals to live mentally healthier lives, with a particular focus on those at greatest risk. 

Mental health problems can affect anyone, at any time. They believe that mental health is everyone’s business.

So, for one week each May, they campaign around a specific theme for Mental Health Awareness Week.

 

Why kindness?

One thing that we have seen all over the world is that kindness is prevailing in uncertain times. 

We have learnt that amid the fear, there is also community, support, and hope.

The added benefit of helping others is that it is good for our own mental health and wellbeing. It can help reduce stress and improve your emotional wellbeing.

Let’s be kind- please encourage your children to look at different ways of how they can be kind.  Below are a range of activities and links for you to explore and adapt for your child.
