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.
This year's Feeling Good Week ran from 18 - 22 June. The theme was 'Building resilience' and encouraged schools and organisations to get involved in a range of activities including:
- Breathing exercises
- Yoga and meditation sessions for students and staff
- Mindfulness stories and colouring
- Compliment boxes
For ideas and inspiration, take a look at previous resource packs.
