Children's Mental Health Week

1st February 2021

Children's Mental Health Week is taking place on 1-7 February 2021.
This year's theme is Express Yourself.

Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film, and doing activities that make you feel good.

It’s important to remember that being able to express yourself is not about being the best at something or putting on a performance for others. It is about finding a way to show who you are, and how you see the world, that can help you feel good about yourself.

What do you like doing to express yourself?
Send in a poem or song that you have written or a picture or a photo showing some of the things that you like to do to express yourself.

To coincide with Children’s Mental Health Week 2021, pop icon Billy Ocean has teamed up with the Young Voices Choir to release a new and uplifting recording of the Bill Withers’ classic ‘Lovely Day’.

The single is available to download now via iTunes or Amazon. All the UK profits from the song will go to Place2Be’s work supporting children and young people’s mental health during these challenging times.

Billy Ocean said: “We have all been affected in different ways over this difficult last year, and many children have really struggled. I’m so happy to be able to join with Young Voices to help make a difference and to raise funds for children’s mental health with this wonderful and hopeful song,”

On 15 June 2021 we will join other children in schools and homes across the UK to sing along with music legend Billy Ocean to help raise funds for Place2Be.
