Growing Together

This week is Children’s Mental Health Week (Feb. 7 to 13, 2022). Its main focus is meant to highlight the importance of mental health for our young people. 

The theme this year is “Growing Together”.

Our children’s mental health has suffered immensely over the past two years at the hands of the Pandemic.

As life slowly begins to resume back to a near normal state we as a society now more than ever need to encourage self-awareness in our kids and allow them a safe space to be able to articulate and share their thoughts and feelings on their mental health.

“Growing Together” means helping our children understand that their voices deserve to be heard too. It is up to us to give them the courage to speak up when they are struggling and to never feel afraid to do so.

Take some time this week to talk to a child about the ways they feel they have grown over the past two years, create lists, make pictures, hang them around the house or place them in jar; share them with friends; make it fun and then do it all over again by asking them how they can also help others to grow as well. 

Let’s all “grow together” by supporting one another.
