The World Health Organisation recognizes World Mental Health day on 10th October every year. This year’s theme set by the World Federation for Mental Health is ‘Mental health for all’. There are a range of resources that schools and teachers can use to mark #WorldMentalHealthDay #WMHD20.

To support schools, we have created a range of resources that teachers can use to discuss Mental Health and Wellbeing in schools, you can find all the resources here.

The resources include:

  • 6 steps to good Mental Health
  • What makes you happy?
  • A poster to share information about who people can talk to if they are worried or need support
  • A template to help you create a leaflet about maintaining good Mental Health
  • Acrostic poem
  • World Mental Health Day quiz.
