Mental Health Awareness Week

MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS WEEK: 18 -22nd May

This year the campaign for Mental Health Awareness Week is focussed on Kindness.

"We have chosen kindness because of its singular ability to unlock our shared humanity. Kindness strengthens relationships, develops community and deepens solidarity. It is a cornerstone of our individual and collective mental health. Wisdom from every culture across history recognises that kindness is something that all human beings need to experience and practise to be fully alive.” 

The Mental Health Foundation

During the current crisis we have all witnessed so many acts of kindness that have improved our own wellbeing and have boosted morale at such a challenging time. Please see below suggested resources for assemblies, form time and for use at home.

We will also be posting a 'Back to School' presentation by Dr Mark Berelowitz, Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist from The Royal Free Hospital who will be talking about the transition for pupils and staff returning to school. 

We hope you will take advantage of these resources. Please let us know if you have used them and any feedback you have at wellbeing@pajes.org
