This week is Children's Mental Health Week
Cumbria is supporting the Children’s Mental Health Charity Place2Be.
The theme for this year is ‘Express Yourself' and you have the chance to enter their competition.
All you have to do is, think about ways you express your feelings, and thoughts.
What has helped you cope during your time at home?
What have you learned during the COVID pandemic?
What do you wish you had known at the start?
Then, use all of your thoughts and feelings to create,
a poem, draw a picture, create an audio song/music or do a piece of writing.
You can even submit a photo of an object that has helped you or something you have made!
(Click on each day for some guidance on each activity)
There are £50 price vouchers to be won - every entry will be entered into the prize draw!
Please send your digital entries to Lucy.Pye@cumbria.gov.uk
by the end of Thursday 4th February. Good luck!
Winners will be shared via CSCP and cumbria.gov.uk website.
P.S. Please remember to send me all your wonderful work via Seesaw so I can see too!
