We’re celebrating Children’s Mental Health Week here in the CMUL, which currently runs from the 1st to the 7th of February. Taking care of ourselves and others has never been more important than now, in challenging times.
The theme of the week this year is – Express Yourself. We’re encouraging all players in Cavan and Monaghan to express themselves this week and celebrate what makes them unique.
Send us your videos of you expressing yourself and we’ll feature it next week!
There are many other things we can do to enhance our wellbeing, such as; Being kind to yourself and others, having a positive routine, eating healthy, keeping in touch with friends and family, exercise and limiting social media use.
It’s also important to know that there is support if you are feeling overwhelmed and need help and it’s always ok to ask for that support.
Here in the CMUL we are always happy to help any of our young players, so reach out if we can help. Also, there are many other good supports in our area, such as;
Jigsaw – who specialise in young people’s well-being https://jigsaw.ie/
Childline – who offer various supports to children online, by calling or texting https://www.childline.ie/
SpunOut – an online service created by young people, for young people. Here you can get advice on many topics and support if you may need it – https://spunout.ie/
It’s always ok to reach out for some extra help and together, as a team we all support each other!
