Mental Health and Wellbeing
Primary Self Care Summer Pack by Anna Freud
Self-care is about what you can do to help yourself feel better or to keep yourself feeling good.
The #SelfcareSummer Primary resource is full of fun activities designed to help children look after their mental health and wellbeing while enjoying themselves. It also signposts them and their families to additional support if they need it.
It’s all part of the Centre's #SelfcareSummer campaign which highlights activities, support and advice every day throughout the summer. It includes Challenge Tuesdays where young people can share their artwork, photography, poems, crafts or activities to help support their wellbeing over the summer.
The lovely Mrs Dunn has put together three Protective Behaviour sessions designed to support the children with keeping happy and safe whilst at home. These follow on from what the children were learning about in school. Enjoy watching the first lesson.
