Wellbeing Support for Children

 

Quote of the Month: May

This month's theme is all about reflecting on what gives our life meaning. Being a part of something bigger than ourselves and focusing on things that we value is key to our wellbeing. So let's take time to reflect on what we care about this month and keep these things at the front of our minds as our societies begin to open up again.

Supporting Children's Mental Health

There are many ways to support children’s mental health and well-being but one of the key things you can do is be there, when the moment comes that your child chooses to open up and talk to you, knowing that you will stop and listen, really listen, is incredibly powerful and will help a child to feel heard.

Through the experience of being heard, a child will feel that you value them and they will start to perceive themselves as valuable. They will develop a stronger sense of themselves, helping them to become more resilient, especially now when everything they have learnt and know about their world has changed.
