Mental Health Awareness Week happens each year in May and is an ideal time for us all to think about mental health, tackle stigma, and discuss how we can create school environments that protect our mental wellbeing.
The week is based around a different theme each year, and previous themes have included nature, kindness, and body image. It is hoped that as many people as possible will have conversations about mental health and the everyday things that can affect it.
Our mental health clearly links to Article 24 but many of the other rights that children and young people are entitled to, also contribute to good mental health. See how many connections you make to different rights in this week’s activities.
