What is Feeling Good Week?
Feeling Good Week (FGW) which launched in 2004, is an annual event to raise awareness and promote the importance of good emotional health and well-being to Surrey's children and young people. Surrey CAMHS works closely with Healthy Schools to plan and run the week which includes a tailored resource pack for local schools and organisations to use throughout the week.
In previous years, Feeling Good Week has encouraged a range of activities including:
- Relaxation music and poetry
- Peer mediation and peer mentors
- Circle time
- Listening/thought boxes and anonymous communication techniques
- Yoga sessions for students and staff
For ideas and inspiration, take a look at previous resource packs.
