Sunday 10th October is #WorldMentalHealthDay 💚. Join us for the release of our brand-new animation and toolkit, ‘Together Not Alone’.
Children and young people may experience many different types of grief and loss during childhood. Here at The Worry Wizard®, we have developed a short animation and toolkit, to help you begin to navigate conversations about grief and loss with your child ❤️🩹.
In ‘Together Not Alone’, you will meet Ella and her friends who love spending time together. But one day, Ella stops coming out to play 🛑. Someone she loves has died . Ella’s friends feel lost. What can they say or do to let Ella know they are still there for her💞?
We would love you to watch our animation with your child 📺, or the children in your care, before enjoying the activities within our toolkit 🧰. Each activity draws out key themes in the animation, offering a gentle, fun and imaginative way to explore the story and nurture emotional connection with your child 🌈.
