Taking care of child mental health information poster

Play Scotland is the National organisation for play in Scotland, working to promote the importance of play for all children and young people, and campaigns to create increased play opportunities in the community. The organisation praises the benefits of nature for young minds and the problems that can come from being too isolated from the natural world. Outdoor play is valuable in keeping young minds healthy and we are always interested any organisation or recommendations that involve getting young people outside.

For more information about the work of Play Scotland and to implement their ideas into the daily life of the children around you take a look at their website.

Here is a poster Play Scotland re-tweeted on their Twitter page. It shows in pictorial form how to nurture a child’s mental health and has nice suggestions that may not usually be thought of.
