The Great Big Lunch Break

You're invited to take part in 'The Great Big Lunch Break'!

To support the new Children's Mental Health Services website launch on 11th November and the further expansion of the Wellbeing and Emotional Support Teams in Schools across Herefordshire and Worcestershire, we are launching a new campaign called 'The Great Big Lunch Break'.

Schools and colleges in Herefordshire and Worcestershire are invited to hold their own 'Great Big Lunch Break' to promote mental health awareness among children and young people.

Across the UK, an estimated five children in every classroom has a mental health problem (Young Minds)

We want all children and young people to feel they can speak up when they are struggling to cope and we aim for this campaign to encourage conversations about mental health and help children realise that it is ok to get support.

You are invited to register for a free resource pack containing everything you need to hold your own event (whether that’s from the playground, in an assembly or via the classroom) at a convenient time for your school or college. The pack will be sent directly to your educational settings address.

Your free event pack will contain:

1. Age appropriate materials
2. Fun and thought-provoking activity suggestions
3. Bunting and balloons
