Children's Mental Health & Wellbeing

Children’s Mental Health Week


Children's Mental Health Week is taking place on 7-13 February 2022. This year's theme is Growing Together.


Throughout the week we will be encouraging children (and adults) to consider how they have grown, and how they can help others to grow. Challenges and setbacks can help us to grow and adapt and trying new things can help us to move beyond our comfort zone into a new realm of possibility and potential. However, emotional growth is often a gradual process that happens over time, and sometimes we might feel a bit ‘stuck’.


This Children's Mental Health Week, we are asking people to Dress to Express on Friday 11th February. The idea is simple – wear a colourful outfit to express yourself and donate £2 which we will split between Place 2 Be and Lady Bankes Primary School to support Children's mental Health and Wellbeing. Children and staff can wear their favourite colour or a unique outfit to express how they are feeling, it can be as simple or elaborate as you like! Dress to Express is an opportunity for self-expression and celebrating a diverse range of emotions.



Lady Bankes Primary School have partnered with Scentered to support Children's Mental Health Week 2022. Whilst this week is about positive mental health for children, we recognise the importance of positive mental health and good wellbeing for our parents, carers, guardians and wider family and would like to offer you all 10% off products on the Scentered website. Scentered have kindly supported Lady Bankes Primary School and will kindly offer us commission on anything purchased using this code which we can then use to further support the wellbeing and Mental Health of the children in our school.

Scentered recognise that modern life can be hectic, stressful and demanding for many of us, so they want to promote a mindful and natural approach to restoring lifestyle balance, with the help of their products, wellbeing tips and support.


With the help of their Stop. Inhale. Reset. mantra at the heart of the brand, they encourage others to incorporate small steps of self-care into their daily routines, combining the power of the breath and aromatherapy to help us become more focussed, less stressed, more relaxed, or happier, as needed in any given moment.​
