Children 5 - 11 Years

It's Good To Be You

Summary:
It's Good To Be You is an arts and health project by Dudley Public Health and Creative Health. During 2011 artists worked in seven Dudley schools to plan, design and create artworks for their school with artists, focusing on key emotional health and wellbeing messages.

Project Information

Participating schools worked with the artists to create artworks that explore the It's Good To Be You messages. The messages profile a series of steps, which can impact on the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people and have been used by the TaMHS (Targeted Mental Health in Schools) teams.

The It's Good To Be You messages are:

Get involved and make a contribution
Eat well and keep physically active
Keep in touch with family and friends
Have fun but remember to stay safe online
Do something creative and learn a new skill
Ask for help and talk about your feelings
Value yourself and know when to take a break
