Looking after your mental health


World Mental Health Day

Sunday, October 10th is World Mental Health Day. The theme of this year's day is all about tackling inequalities in mental health. We've combined resources from the charity Mind and some great mindfulness activities to produce our very own World Mental Health Day activity pack.

Why not download your own version? With activities to complete online and some to print out and take part it, it's a great way to mark the day with the whole family.
