Kooths Digital health
Tue 08th February 2022
February is a busy month for Kooth Digital Health with one of the UK’s largest mental health campaigns taking place ‘Children’s Mental Health Week’ from 7th February – 14th February 2022 aswell as celebrating LGBT+ History Month. This is an important month in the calendar for anyone who works with children, young people, adults and families as we all work together to raise awareness and remove stigma.
Children’s Mental Health Week (7th – 14th February 2022)
This year ‘Children’s Mental Health Week’ theme is ‘Growing Together’. We’re encouraging schools and organisations to join us in our mission to remind young people of the fantastic online platform we provide. Share our colourful graphic (which can you find here) on your platforms during the week along with the suggested social media messages below.
Primary School (Transition Workshops for Year 6) – Bookings now open
Primary schools across South Tyneside are being invited to book their free workshop in preparation for Spring/Summer term supporting year 6 moving onto secondary school. The transition workshops provide students with an opportunity to explore their feelings, feel more prepared and know where to go for support if they feel unsure or nervous in the first few months of adjustments.
