Mental Health Awareness Week

This week, we observe Mental Health Awareness Week (18th - 24th May) as it is a perfect opportunity for everyone in the UK to focus on their mental health.  This year's theme is kindness.

During this pandemic, kindness is central as it strengthens relationships, develops community and deepens solidarity.  A perfect example is Sir Tom Moore, who raised funds for the NHS; resulted in other aid groups responding to local community needs.

Children at Lathom will reflect and show acts of kindness towards their family and others.  This week, they created word clouds, posters, poems and letters for the local MP to sensitise the public about the importance of maintaining good mental health.
