This week we led sessions with the children in Key Stage 2 entitled ‘Talking Mental Health’, based on materials created by the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families. The aims of the session were to know what language we can use to talk about mental health and well-being; know who are our trusted adults are and how to ask them for help and support; know the difference between small feelings and big feelings, and how to be a good listener.
Feedback from parents included: “Thank you so much. Such an important session, I am so grateful for this to be addressed” and “Excellent! Mental health issued are always so low down on the agenda, so I thank you for addressing them with the children.”
