My Brilliant Place to Be Me! has been created by Cornwall Council to help 8-11 year olds explore simple ways to explore and nurture their wellbeing.

Here you’ll find lots of worksheets and resources to help your child:

  • Become more aware of their emotions, and recognise and name their feelings
  • Understand that all feelings are OK
  • Become better able to manage uncomfortable feelings with simple self-soothing strategies and by seeking help
  • Identify the people in their lives who can help them if needed

Your child can use the Brilliant Me! resources in any way they like! You can download the whole journal, or focus on one of the three key wellbeing themes. Click below to get started!

Why the title?

One of Cornwall Council’s four priorities is that ‘Cornwall is a brilliant place to be a child and grow up’.

We all want Cornwall to be a place where all children and young people are physically and mentally healthy, feel safe and have a sense of belonging in their schools and communities - which can help remove barriers to education and allow more children to enjoy, learn and achieve.
