As our younger children’s wellbeing comes under the spotlight during Children’s Mental Health Week, we wanted to share a few tips on how to best support their emotional growth through Action Mental Health’s Healthy Me programme. A specially designed programme geared towards to supporting and promoting better mental health among 8 to 11 year olds, it features fun, played based activities, such as the Emoji Game.

This is a fun and effective programme which employs the principals of a learning system used in autism education – helping those who have difficulties conveying their emotions, through pictures and illustrations.

Outside the field of autism education, it poses a great opportunity for children in mainstream education confront their own emotions that they might not yet be able to fully articulate.
