Playful Minds is a new campaign being launched by Book of Beasties, calling for our Government to prioritise mental health support to children and families as we start the process of easing the lockdown imposed by COVID19.
With the pressures that COVID19 has placed on children and young people, many of whom already experience issues with their mental health, we risk emerging from the current crisis straight into a new one. A crisis that could last for generations to come and have huge, possibly immeasurable social and economic impact.
Playful Minds is all about ensuring the right support is in place to allow children ample time throughout their education, at school and home, to navigate their emotions, mental health and overall wellbeing by using what they know best, play!
If we can help improve children's mental wellbeing now, we can help them lead happier and more productive life in the future.
