Children’s Mental Health Week

Cool Story - Children’s Mental Health Week

February occasionally gets a poor rap. Typically, the second month of the year is regarded as one of the most depressing due to the short, gloomy days. BUT... February, our shortest month of the year, has a lot going for it: The Welsh refer to February as y mis bach, which translates to "small month," and its name is derived from the Latin word februum, which implies purification. Spring is only one month away, yet in the Southern Hemisphere, February is a summer month that corresponds to August! A more significant event is Place2Be's Children's Mental Health Week, which runs from February 6–12. Children's Mental Health Week was established by Place2Be in 2015 to draw attention to the significance of young people's mental health.

Let's Connect is the year's theme, which calls for meaningful connections between people. It's a fantastic chance for us to consider how we can best take care of our mental health and assist loved ones or friends in maintaining their mental health. Being kind is an easy approach to assist. Being kind to one another makes us feel connected, which leads to the development of new friendships or the consolidation of already existing ones. I might play a game online with someone this month, talk to a classmate I've never spoken to before, or volunteer to get involved in my neighborhood.

Happy News for...

A license to keep a unicorn in one's yard has been issued to a seven-year-old Los Angeles resident. The County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care and Control received a handwritten letter from Madeline requesting permission to retain a unicorn. She got an answer from the department two weeks later, but it came with requirements like eating watermelon and getting enough of sun and moonlight exposure. She only needs to locate one of the fabled beasts now.
