29 January 2021

Children’s Mental Health Week is taking place on 1-7 February 2021. This year's theme is Express Yourself.

At 9am on Monday 1 February, there will be an assembly available to all schools and families which will feature pupils and well-known faces discussing the theme of Children’s Mental Health Week, as well as ways that children and young people can get involved at home. It will be hosted by Blue Peter’s Lindsey Russell and CBBC Presenter and Place2Be Champion Rhys Stephenson.

As the majority of pupils are now at home, the assembly will provide an easy way to bring the nation's children together (virtually) with a positive message about the power of creative self-expression. Famous faces and contributors will also be taking part live from their homes.

During the assembly, BAFTA Kids will also be launching their annual Young Presenter Competition. The competition aims to find exciting new on-screen talent aged between 7 -14 years, and this year entrants will be asked to respond to the theme ‘Express yourself…’. Previous winners of the competition have gone on to host at BAFTA red-carpets and events throughout the year, as well as securing presenting slots of Sky News FYI. Tune in to the assembly find out how to enter. More information is available on the BAFTA website.
