As we come to the end of our week focussing on mental health awareness, it’s important to remember that wellbeing continues to be a focus throughout the year. Children need to develop the skills to understand and express their emotions, and to develop strategies for coping with the ups and downs of life.
It’s important to encourage your child’s emotional wellbeing and mental health from an early age. The attached document is tips that have been suggested to Scope by parents and professionals with experience of special educational needs.
