From 7- 13 February, schools, youth groups, organisations, families and young people across the UK will take part in Children’s Mental Health Week (CMHW).

CMHW is promotes the importance of children's mental health. It encourages us to talk to others about how we are feeling, and seek support.

This year’s theme is Growing Together.

Growing together is about growing emotionally and finding ways to help each other.

As we change and grow, sometimes it is hard to see the way forward. But there is always a way forward. The people that we are surrounded by and our community itself can help us on our journey, as we grow into the people we are today

How do I join in with Children's Mental Health Week?

Looking back at our pasts can be painful, but it also reminds us of the challenges that we have overcome, what we have achieved/learnt, and how we have grown as a person, and this is valuable advice that we can give to help others who maybe struggling.

Imagine that you could offer advice and support to your younger self. What would you say?

If you wrote a letter to your younger self what three tips would you give if you could go back in time and do things over again? 

What is the best piece of advice that someone has given you?

What piece of advice do you wish you had known when you were growing up?

Use our 'Letter to my younger self' to think about your thoughts and your achievements and what advice you would give someone younger than you. Feel free to submit your answers so we can share these to help others  - the form is totally anonymous. See our #3TipstoMyYoungerSelf Campaign on Instagram
