This year OUR Generation supports Children’s Mental Health Week, which takes place, from February 7 to 13, focusing on the theme of ‘Growing Together’.
During the week, OUR Generation will be sharing tips and help for children and young people to promote positive mental health.
OUR Partners Action Mental Health and Donegal Youth Service will also launch their brand new initiative aimed at helping Northern Ireland’s youngest children grow emotionally, and to better understand their mental health. But we’re keeping that under wraps until Thursday, February 10, when all will be revealed so make sure you visit amh.org.uk to find out all about it.
Cooperation ireland and Playboard NI will also be taking some very special workshops. You can find out more and get tickets below.
