Let’s Connect – Secondary Schools
This activity is designed for children aged 10-12 but can be adapted for younger or older children and children with Special Educational Needs.
Human beings thrive in communities, and this connection is vital for our wellbeing, and our survival. When we have healthy connections – to family, friends and others – this can support our mental health and our sense of wellbeing. And when our need for rewarding social connections is not met, we can sometimes feel isolated and lonely – which can have a negative impact on our mental health. Let's Connect is about making meaningful connections for all, during Children's Mental Health Week - and beyond.
