Compass is a charity which provides health and wellbeing services, helping people unleash their unique potential and live healthier, safer and more fulfilling lives.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is an uncertain time for children and families and Compass recognises the impact this may be having on children’s mental health.
Compass believes that during these unprecedented and often confusing times it is now more important then ever to create a much needed wellbeing boost into children’s lives.
To help meet the wellbeing needs of children, Compass and its traded arm Positive Effect have teamed up to deliver free ‘Wellbeing Wake-up’ sessions for primary aged children, parents/carers and education staff via its YouTube Channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXumjginrAvOILD-1PkJF_g/ .
These bitesize sessions will be based around the five ways to wellbeing; connect, be active, take notice, keep learning and give.
Each video will include a short explanation for adults on why it is important to promote wellbeing, followed by a ‘wake up and shake up’ for children’s minds and bodies to become focused, finishing with a interactive activity that can be carried out with the child and adult at a convenient time.
Compass says: “Please join us in supporting the mental health and wellbeing of children across the nation by promoting this exciting, new, FREE project and subscribing to our YouTube Channel (LINK). You can also follow us on Twitter @Compass4health and @effect_positive.
“Our first ‘Wellbeing Wake-up video will be uploaded on the 20 May 2020. We look forward to seeing you all there.”
