We’re more aware of how our mental health can affect our daily lives, health and happiness than ever before. This information wasn’t as widespread years ago, so many from my generation and older don’t have the skills or awareness needed to improve their wellbeing.
Ways to Support Your Children’s Mental Health using Therapeutic Play, including Techniques & Activity Ideas
The act of play can be a great therapeutic tool for children, and not just for those with complex needs. Play therapy can help any child to act out and work through their pain, confusion, worries, fears and anything they’ve found traumatic.
It’s Children’s Mental Health Week 2021 and the theme this year is EXPRESS YOURSELF, to encourage young people to find ways to share their feelings. Life is harder than usual at the moment, and it’s easy to forget how children can also be affected mentally by current circumstances
