Monday was World Mental Health Day. This year’s theme is ‘Make mental health and wellbeing for all a global priority’. World Mental Health Day works to ensure mental health is treated the same as physical health. Mental health problems is growing amongst our children. We feel it is important to do as much as possible to prevent mental ill-health amongst young people from an early age, so our children grow into thriving adults.
World Mental Health Day is also a chance to talk about mental health, how we need to look after it, and how important it is to talk about things and get help if you are struggling.
Our emotions poster is a great way to encourage children to have a conversation about how they feel and talk about their different emotions.
At the end of everyday we ask our daughter how she was feeling today and she points to the relevant emotion on the poster.
This poster can be bought as part of our bundle of 6 posters here.
