Saturday 10th October 2020 is World Mental Health Day. The day raises awareness of mental health. This year’s theme is “mental health for all”, which aims to make sure everyone can get the help they need.

Of course we all want to feel happy all the time, but has the concern over mental health gone too far? Or should mental health be as much of a priority as physical health? After all, just because you can’t necessarily see a scar or hear a cough with poor mental health, it doesn’t mean the suffering is any less.

This resources pack features an article about World Mental Health Day from The Week Junior newspaper, plus an activities sheet to get children thinking, speaking and writing about what the story means to them.
