For this year’s theme Find our Brave, Place2Be asked everyone to think about what makes them feel brave.
Bravery comes in all shapes and sizes and is different for everyone. Bravery can be about sharing worries and asking for help, trying something new or pushing yourself outside your comfort zone. Finding your Brave can build your confidence, self- esteem and make you feel good about yourself.
Life often throws challenges our way. Bravery isn’t about coping alone or holding things in. It’s about finding positive ways to deal with things that might be difficult, overcoming physical and mental challenges and looking after yourself.
During this special week, thousands of children in Primary schools across the UK took part in Show & Tells, by bringing something into school themed around bravery.
We want children, young people and adults to share, learn and help each other to Find their Brave. We all take brave steps in our everyday lives and when we do, we feel more positive and confident. By taking part we can support each other’s wellbeing while also raising money to ensure that every child can access the mental health support they need.
We all have times when we need to Find our Brave. Children brought something themed around bravery – an object, photo, picture or story about them doing something where they Found their Brave. Some children learnt a new skill, tried at something they find hard, asked for help or did something they were scared of.
Children spend this week taking time to talk about how they had, or others in their family had Found their Brave. We shared our thoughts and feelings, listening to others and developing our resilience.
