Five ways to 'express yourself' ... Free virtual sessions to support Children's Mental Health Week

This week is Children's Mental Health Week (1-7 February 2021). This year's theme is 'Express Yourself', and Place2Be (the children's mental health charity behind this week) are encouraging children (and adults) to explore the different ways we can express ourselves, and the creative ways that we can share our feelings, our thoughts and our ideas.

To do this, with the help of BAFTA Kids and Oak National Academy, Place2Be have produced a range of resources for both Primary and Secondary aged pupils and families - and amongst these resources are five free virtual sessions led by experts and some familiar faces, focusing on expressing yourself through:

  • Art
  • Dance
  • Creating Content
  • Writing
  • Acting

Watch all five videos on BAFTA Kids & Teens YouTube Channel.

In partnership with BAFTA Kids and Oak National Academy, we’ve created a series of free virtual sessions led by experts and familiar faces across acting, art, content creation, dance and writing. The “I Express Myself Through…” series sees stars such as Oti Mabuse and Bukky Bakray discuss how they creatively express themselves, and share their tips and advice for children and young people. These videos are aimed at older primary school pupils, and secondary / high school pupils.
