Children’s Mental Health Week will be held this month, with the aim of starting a conversation on mental health for children and young people across the country. The theme for this year is Let’s Connect.
At First Step PE, we know how important physical activity is for a child, but for us, the social benefits are just as important as the physical ones. Whether it’s a team or group activity, getting active is a great mood booster, with opportunities to broaden their social skills and physical awareness.
Whether you’re an educator, teacher or coach, you can access free-to-download resources on making meaningful connections. Designed for both primary and secondary school-aged children, children and adults can work together to focus on supporting mental health through their social interactions.
