As stated in the resolution, “it is crucial that the month of September is set apart each year to recognize Children’s Emotional Wellness Week in order to bring attention to the importance of children's mental health and well-being.”
In conjunction with Children’s Emotional Wellness Month, ELF is implementing a Children’s Emotional Wellness Week in low-income schools throughout Orange County. Empowered by Piggie Bear, the character created by ELF to help improve children’s mental and emotional health and wellness in a fun and memorable way, the goal is to teach children as young as 3-5 years old the tools and strategies to help them live happier and healthier lives. The curriculum includes materials in both English and Spanish providing daily emotional health tools and resources including recorded stories, songs, and videos for use in the classroom and by families in their homes.
James said, “I could not be more proud to have our organization tied to the first Children’s Emotional Wellness Month. Our end goal is to care for the mental and emotional needs of children and their families and the reason we created Children’s Emotional Wellness Week which we hope to grow exponentially in future years.”
