World Mental Health Day on 10th October

World Mental Health Day - 10th October 2015

To mark World Mental Health Day on the 10th October we would encourage you to help promote positive mental health to your pupils. Teaching pupils about mental health and emotional wellbeing as part of a developmental PSHE education programme can support them in developing the skills, language and knowledge they need to keep themselves and others healthy and safe.


There are a number of ways in which you can help:

  • Health for Kids have a dedicated section about dealing with feelings on their website along with an online game teachers could use in their lessons– www.healthforkids.co.uk
  • Social media support – see e-blast below encouraging pupils to talk about their feelings
  • Healthy Schools Network sessions for Primary and Secondary staff this term focus on a ‘Whole School’ approach to mental health & emotional Health & wellbeing – to find out more download our training and events brochure here
