This year at Lapal, we celebrated World Mental Health Day by talking about the importance of talking. We held a little photoshoot to celebrate positivity and healthy self-esteem. It was good fun laughing at ourselves.
Some of our children used the theme of superheroes. They talked about if were a superhero with a special talent or power that could help others or make them feel better in some way then what could it be? They imagined heroes that had special hearing powers to listen out to people in distress - perhaps feeling sad or even crying so quietly that no one else could possibly hear them. That hero could fly to their aid.
