World Mental Health Day
This week, students have been reminded about the support available both in school and online, to help with mental health. The assembly includes links to key sources of support for students and encourages them to get talking as part of World Mental Health Day 2023.
This World Mental Health Day, 10th October 2023, ITV’s Britain Get Talking and YoungMinds’ #HelloYellow are collaborating to help children across the country open up. Together with teachers and a clinical psychologist, we’ve created a piece of homework like no other. A conversation starter for children to take home, designed to help them talk about the hardest subjects on their minds with their parents or trusted adults. Because sharing worries can help ease stress and reduce anxiety.
A different kind of homework
Mental Health has declined in almost 40% of school children (NHS Survey). That’s why Britain Get Talking is setting the nation a different kind of homework. It’s designed to help ease our stress and reduce our anxiety by asking what's on our minds. Have a chat tonight or take part in our national homework exercise this World Mental Health Day, 10th October. You don’t need a pen or paper, but if you’re unsure where to start, download the ITV booklet below and try writing or drawing your worries on the front cover.
