CMH week 2021

Express Yourself Competition

As part of Children's Mental Health Week, we asked children and young people to share with us the way they express their feelings and thoughts about what has helped them cope or what they have learnt in this time from the COVID pandemic or maybe what they wished they had known at the start. 

We have been amazed at the high numbers of entries we have received this week. A huge thank you to everyone who has got involved and shared something with us. Truly amazing!

We have five prize vouchers of £10 for the 'Express Yourself' Children's Mental Health Week Competition.

We have used a random number generator online to give us the numbers of prizewinners.

Congratulations to : Ben, Charlie, Isabella, Mabel and Theo.

Be Kind

be kind

Taking steps to look after your wellbeing can help you deal with pressure, and reduce the impact that stress has on your life. This is sometimes called developing emotional resilience. Resilience is not just your ability to bounce back, but also your capacity to cope with things on a day to day basis or when facing something challenging. Resilience isn't a personality trait – it's something that we can all take steps to achieve.

We all need to take the time to look after ourselves, take some time today to do something you enjoy – cuddle your cat, dance, go out for a walk, watch your favourite movie – whatever it is – give yourself permission to pause and take time for yourself.

Try putting into practice some of the things that we have shared this week, make yourself a plan of wellbeing like the one below – things to help yourself feel good this week or give yourself space, maybe take some inspiration from the fantastic things that have been shared by our amazing children and young people of Cumbria.
