Feeling Good Week (FGW) launched in 2004 and is an annual awareness raising event to 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.
Each year, schools and organisations working with children and young people in Surrey can apply for a grant to put towards the cost of activities to promote positive mental health. In previous years schools and local organisations have got involved in a range of activities including:
- relaxation music and poetry
- peer mediation and peer mentors
- circle time
- listening/thought boxes and anonymous communication techniques
- inclusion learning walks
- yoga sessions for staff/pupils and/or parents
If you're looking for ideas and inspiration, take a look at the previous resource packs.
Don’t forget to let us know what you have been up to over Feeling Good Week by emailing your photographs together with a description to email@example.com. Please ensure you have permission from parents to use images of their children as the photographs may be used on the CAMHS website and on social media.
