The following resource has been planned to support whole school implementation of Mental Health strategies, as well as improving the subject knowledge of both teachers and children alike.
The presentation included can be used as both staff training and children’s workshops, as the school sees fit, however it is recommended to deliver 2 workshops a day over the course of one week: each workshop should take no more than 10-15 minutes.
The resources included are fully comprehensive and include everything needed to roll this scheme out, including guided meditations, introduction to CBT sheets and mindfulness activities.
The “Brain City” resources are bespoke and written by me, distilling some of the best Mental Health theory into a child-friendly form.
Children across the school showed a marked improvement in their understanding of Mental Health and healthy coping strategies; these have been able to be embedded throughout the school following the week-long focus on this topic.
