Being Ourselves

We are all unique, different and special, in Children’s Mental Health week 5 – 11 February 2018 we are encouraged to celebrate our uniqueness. Some children and young people may find it difficult to think positively about themselves. We can encourage them to celebrate their unique qualities and strengths.

By encouraging children to develop a positive view of themselves we can help them overcome many difficulties. We can encourage them to feel more connected to the people in their lives which can help children and young people to cope with life’s challenges.

We all need a bit of help sometimes; it can be difficult to know who you can ask for help:

  • Family member,
  • A trusted friend,
  • Harmless and Tomorrow Project
  • A professional

It is best to decide who you can talk to, I understand you may not like asking for help, you may feel that you don’t want to burden other people, you might even worry about how they might respond to you, it is important to remember people who care about you will want to help you.

It is important to show respect and kindness to everyone around us, even if they are different because we all have different skills, abilities and interests.

Why not contact us for support and information by emailing info@harmless.org.uk.
