10 – 14 October this year marks Play in Hospital Week, brought to you by Starlight and National Association of Health Play Specialists (NAHPS).
The theme for this year is ‘Play for resilience and good mental health’. World Mental Health Day on 10th October highlights the importance of play for everyone’s health. Children, young people, play practitioners and families all benefit from play too! In a year which sees teams striving to recover time and space for play and playfulness this series of events aims to highlight the boost in mental health which can come from play.
