In the first half of July, The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust is giving schools and youth services the chance to win a whole library of wellbeing books by taking part in a ‘Wellbeing Challenge’.
Based around NHS ‘Five steps to mental wellbeing’, the challenge is designed to encourage children and young people to think about their mental health. It’s an interactive competition and everyone who registers will receive a welcome pack with ideas for end-of-term activities, all relating to staying mentally well. The Trust will also be posting lots of activity ideas on Facebook Twitter and Instagram between 2 - 13 July.
The judging panel will pick 10 winners who’ll each win a wellbeing library, tailored to either primary or secondary school pupils. There will also be 100 runners up prizes of a free mental health book.
CWMT Chief Executive, Clare Stafford, said: “We know from the success of our Mental Health Book Club that books can play a really positive role in children’s mental health. Teachers, youth workers and other professionals can use them to support children and young people in understanding and expressing their feelings in a way which is non-threatening and helps builds their confidence. We’d encourage anyone who is interested to take our Wellbeing Challenge.”
