Children’s Mental Health & Wellbeing
As we continue our way through the month of October, we get the opportunity to marvel at the ways that nature transforms itself from summer to winter. The Action for Happiness Calendar has a positive task to fulfill each day.
It is important that we use words of encouragement as children grow, as they will hopefully stay with them for a long time.
You are loved
I have faith in you
You are creative
You are capable
You are deserving
You are strong
Your choices matter
You make a difference

SELF CARE SEPTEMBER 2021
Self-care isn't selfish, it's essential.
No-one's perfect. But so often we compare our insides to other people's outsides.
This month we're encouraging everyone to be kinder to themselves (as well as others), especially when things go wrong.
Self-care increases our resilience and helps us get more out of life. It also helps us accept others as they are too.
