Counting down to Children's Mental Health Week 2020: theme and resources are available now

With just 13 weeks to go, we're excited to announce that the theme for Children's Mental Health Week 2020 is 'Find your Brave'. We've created free primary and secondary resources to help schools and youth groups get involved.

For this year’s theme Find our Brave, Place2Be is asking everyone to think about what makes them feel brave.

Bravery comes in all shapes and sizes and is different for everyone. Bravery can be about sharing worries and asking for help, trying something new or pushing yourself outside your comfort zone. Finding your Brave can build your confidence, self- esteem and make you feel good about yourself.

Life often throws challenges our way. Bravery isn’t about coping alone or holding things in. It’s about finding positive ways to deal with things that might be difficult, overcoming physical and mental challenges and looking after yourself.

Free resources

Free primary and secondary resources are now available on the Children’s Mental Health Week website, including assembly guides, slides, group activities, fundraising ideas and more to help schools and youth groups explore what it means to Find your Brave. We've also shared top tips and other resources for parents and carers.

As we get nearer to the week, we'll also share our social media and fundraising guides to help children, young people and adults across the country shout about the week and help to raise vital funds for Place2Be.
