Children’s Mental Health Week 2019

It’s Children’s Mental Health Week (4-10 February)!This week, Tynecastle High School are proud to support Children’s Mental Health Week – Place2Be’s annual campaign to shine a spotlight on the importance of children and young people’s mental health.

This year’s theme is Healthy: Inside and Out and we’re encouraging everyone in the Tynecastle High School community to think about how they look after their bodies and minds. Physical and mental health are connected, so the simple things we do to look after our bodies can also help with how we feel.

This week in school we’ll be thinking about things like food, physical activity and sleep, plus the impact of our digital lives on physical and mental wellbeing. What positive choices can we make to keep ourselves as well as we can be?

If you’d like to get involved, we’d love your help in spreading the word. The Children’s Mental Health Week website has a range of resources, including tips for parents and carers.
