Talking about Mental Health

Monday 27 September 2021

 

It’s becoming increasingly more and more important to talk about our mental health.

Today, Year 5 & 6 have been learning about the importance of talking about their mental health. We watched an animation to help us understand small everyday feelings and when those feeling become too much/too big for us to cope with on our own.

We chatted about our circle of support and the trusted people who we might speak to if our mental health needed a little TLC.

In school, there are loads of ways for your child to ask for help if they need it – can they tell you about our living and learning box?  -the adults in school who they would choose to speak to if they needed some help?

Why not try chatting with your child about how you cope with small everyday feelings at home and the things you do when those things become too much…
